    :Yes:
    We use Colgate (6months+) DD is 16mo. We have tried Jack N Jill, she liked the banana flavored one the most from memory.
    It confuses me too!

    Just a bit of a naive question about Jack N Jill tooth paste.. It says Sugar free, but it says it has organic/natural flavoring.. All the flavors are fruits, so would it still have "natural occurring" sugars (fructose) in the product?

    The natural flavors could be just the oils that don't have much sugar?

    I would also like to know where I can buy Jack N Jill toothpaste - preferably not online as I only want to buy one tube and the shipping will more than likely be more than the toothpaste!

    Yeah we bought the colgate kids one but DS doesn't like the mint things and wont put the toothbrush in his mouth if it's on it. So we've just got him back semi brushing with a wet toothbrush, but would like to find a non-minty toothpaste as he's had teeth since 6 months and now with a mouthfull of teeth and eating lots of food he really needs to clean more often. Might have to give the jack and jill one a go. Will check the shops tonight.

    OP - Definately use toothpaste!! It is so important!!
    It is not going to hurt if they swallow the toothpaste, unless they swallow the whole tube of course!! Dentists also recommend using toothpaste with flouride!!!!

    The recommended amount of toothpaste to use for that age is 1/4 pea size. which is a really small amount. so it is definately not going to do any harm if they swallow it!! They also recommend that you don't get the children to rinse their mouths afterwards. my DD didn't rinse her mouth until she was 3 (when she had to do it because mummy did ).

    It's really been racking my brain and I can't seem to find any information on it..
    I'm thinking of sending an email to there FAQ.

    I have a tube of the Banana flavored one right in front of me and it says NOTHING about being sugar free but there website it says sugar free...

    The only reason I really got to thinking about it was because my dd had been using Jack N Jill since 6mo
    When she was 13mo we noticed a build up on her teeth, the dentist told us it was plaque build up.
    We were told to switch to Colgate and the plaque disappeared..

    We never give her lollies, juice etc.
    And she isn't fed milk right before bed.. She has an extremely clean diet due to allergies and eczema.
    I just don't know what could have caused it...

    It's a shame because I really liked Jack N Jill, especially because it's SLS free, even naturally occurring sugar can still cause tooth decay so I would like to think it wouldn't have any type of sugar in it, even small amounts.

    I think the only way to know for sure is if I email or call them lol.
