AS IF my toddler is going to let me Lie her down,
stick a brush smeared with tooth paste in her mouth,
brush her teeth for TWO MINUTES STRAIGHT,
TWICE a day!
what planet are you living on? Seriously?
I also hear you expect me to wipe any excess tooth paste out of her mouth, with a washer, Untill shes able to spit.
but we have enough tantrums in a day without adding this to the mix.
Further more, I believe putting my 19 month old through this, twice a day, Will only make her reject her tooth brush and refuse to brush her teeth untill shes school aged.
The only way i can brush her teeth is by:
a. letting her watch me, and giving it a go herself.
b. encouraging her to do it herself
c. Giving them a quick once over, when she lets me
d. gentally teaching her to spit afterwards.
Maybe you should include that in your notes.
