How many teeth does baby have now? have you started brushing them or do you still just wipe off with a wet cloth? If your brushing them, how does baby do?

Jacob now has 3 teeth on top and 2 teeth on bottom. I have started brushing them once a day. Someday he will sit there and just let me brush them, plus I brush his gums. but most days he will try to grab the tooth brush. It seems that he wants to brush them himself..lol.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Kira has five teeth (2 on the bottom and 3 on top) and we think the sixth is coming in.

I brush her teeth once a day, but most of the time she just bites the brush. I'm still using the fingertip one, so I have to watch out otherwise she chomps down on my finger.

JR has 6 teeth, 4 on top and 2 on the bottom. We brush with a toddler toothbrush and non flouride toothpaste. He does great. We taught him to say "ahhhh" while we're brushing so his tongue is out of the way. He sees the toothbrush and starts going ahhhh without prompting!

Melissa, my DD was the same way with the toothbrush. She's only a little independent We figured out she did better when we let her brush for a minute then we finished the job. She still does this most nights (days she does it on her own) without any fuss!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Jackson had 10 teeth, 4 on top, 4 on bottom and 2 molars! He goes back and forth with letting us brush his teeth with ease and fighting us!
