Brushing Baby's Gums

Did you guys love Ant's guest post earlier? I thought he did a great job on it. Thanks for writing it, Antie-poo! 

Earlier in the week I received the Grins & Giggles Infant Tooth & Gum Cleanser kit from Amazon.


I almost went with this one, but it doesn't come with toothpaste and I like the idea of getting Harry used to it before any of his teeth come in. Last night Ant brushed our sweet baby's mouth for the first time.


Harry didn't seem to mind it. But, at his age he automatically starts to suck on anything that goes in his mouth. As that reflux goes away and he starts intentionally sucking he might not like it as much, so that's why I wanted to start so early.

Oh, and the toothpaste is banana and apple flavored, who wouldn't love that? The kit is safe for babies three months and older and doesn't contain fluoride, making it safe to swallow. The directions recommend brushing twice a day, but we'll probably stick to once a day until his teeth appear.
