Hopefully the older he gets, the easier it'll get.
I refuse to hold him down and force the toothbrush in his mouth, I've done that once (regrettably) and I will absolutely never put my baby boy through that again He was hysterical and didn't sleep until after midnight that night.
Slowly getting better, in my opinion *any* brushing is better than none

Serioust question...How do you sing while brushing?
DD tries to talk sometimes while I brush her teeth so I tell her to shoosh as it prevents her teeth from actually being brushed.
And if DF tries talking to me while I'm brushing mine, if I try talking back, then I sound a little bit.....*insert whatever word you wanna use that wont offend you* ......................can't talk with a mouth full of paste and spit and bubbles and a brush.

I do the "ya brush ya teeth sch sch sch sch, ya brush ya teeth sch sch sch sch sch sch" song. Also I brush my teeth at the same time and let him copy me. Since he was little (like 1-ish) I've let him just chew on a tooth brush in the shower or bath, no toothpaste. But now he can spit, and loves spitting He has tooth paste.

Oh boy! We tried eveything with dd2, eventually we had to literally pin her to the floor while we did a quick scrub , she used to . Then one night we tried it in front of the TV and she was so distracted it worked
Though i could follow the method i heard a mum talking about not so long ago. It doesn't really matter if you don't brush them, they get a whole new set when they are 7 anyway
