As soon as Joseph had a tooth- we starting brushing.

He got his first tooth at just over 4 mths abut he had a toothbrush from about 3 that he used to suck on a nibble- I felt giving it to him as a toy would make the tooth brush seem less scary.

I used to brush my childrens gums as soon as I spotted a tooth beginning to come through, then they get used to the feel of the brush against their gums.

We do struggle to get Rio to brush her teeth. She's a bit of a monster and hates anything like teeth brushing, hair combing, nappy changing. It's a constant battle. With her teeth, in the end we usually have to pin her down I'm afraid, but I think it's important that she do it. SDhe has her first visit toi the dentist in June so that'll be fun!!
