This is probably the one thing I dread most about taking care of Cody. He HATES getting his teeth brushed! I have to pin him down with one arm and brush with the other. He flails and screams and sometimes forgets to breathe and turns blue. I only do it maybe 3 to 4 times a week because of how awful it is for the both of us. I do give him his vitamins daily - his teeth look great so I'm not concerned about not doing it every night. Anyone else going through the same thing?

Gary did do that. Now, he LOVES it, if he sees his toothbrush he starts pointing and doing a little whiny "eh eh eh eh!" lol

Sebastian is the opposite, he LOVES getting his teeth brushed. He has a panda tooth brush (he loves pandas!) and one of those safe-to-swallow tooth paste. He never fights me but he also doesn't like brushing for too long either.

Every night after his bath, Hunter says teeth and points to the toothbrush holder and wiggles around until i get it ready. I can only brush his teeth for a minute and then he has to "brush" them.

Same here. Gio likes the toothbrush, but take too long and he'll start turning his head and swatting it away lol. He likes to do it himself too, so i let him have it after i'm done.

We try to do Katelyn's every night but its hard. She likes it but all she wants to do is suck the toothpaste off then she's done. I have found that if I give her something to hold like the tube of toothpaste it will distract her long enough that I can brush them real quick.

Drake does not mind it, then other days hates it. I still use the rubber finger brush because he does not like an actual tooth brush. Sometimes he will arch his back and go limp so I have trouble brushing them, other times he just sits there and you can tell he is like "Ok Ma...hurry please..."

That's us exactly. I always give it to him when I'm done.

Mason is obsessed with brushing his teeth. I think it's just because he sees his big sister do it and he has to do everything she does. I hate when he tries to walk around with the toothbrush in his mouth. Makes me too nervous that he will fall and it will push through his throat.

Eve knows when I'm going to brush mine LOL she will hear the bathroom door open and come sprinting (in her walker) or crawling like mad to get there before I am done
She loves to copy the noise I make when I spit out the paste
Thennn it is her turn and we brush her teeth together and then I let her go at it.

Joe LOVES his toothbrush! He insists on doing it himself and he is pretty decent at it. He even tries to spit out the toothpaste afterwards
