How important is it in your household?
Do you start brushing your childrens teeth early?
Do you monitor the amount of sugary foods your kids eat?
I thought it was the norm to ensure good habits such as brushing teeth are enforced early but the thread about a child having coke made me think it's not. Don't know what happened to that thread, it disappeared!
For our family, as soon as our boys got his first tooth completely through we started brushing twice a day. We have always been sugar conscious with our boys. Dh and I both have good teeth and we make every effort and hope our boys will too. Ds1 is 4 yrs and he happily brushes without fuss morning and night.
