Brushing baby's teeth
Phoebe now has ten teeth - all eight at front, four on the bottom and four on the top, and two molars. (Although the molars have just broken the skin and are not fully through yet.) We started brushing her teeth with a proper baby toothbrush when she cut the first two at 16 weeks, but she has become very reluctant recently. So, how do you get a ten month old to allow you to brush her teeth? Im told, in comparison to other babies, she has cut them fairly early and very quickly, so I wonder if her mouth may be sore and that is why she is refusing? However, I am worried that if we dont brush them her teeth may get damaged. All ideas and suggestions welcome!!
