White pearly

Anney loves getting her teeth brushed. I started cleaning her teeth when she was a few months old. Initially, I started with a finger-type washcloth from MAM and then, I changed it to the traditional toothbrush when she was a year old. However, as I uses a battery-operated toothbrush to clean Werney Cheh Cheh's teeth, she wanted to try that too.

So yesterday, I bought the same one like Cheh Cheh but in different colour. See, how cute is this Colgate SpongeBob SquarePants's battery operated toothbrush?

Although the recommended age for the battery-operated toothbrush is for 3 and above, Anney seems to be able to use it well with our supervision, of course. She can even press the on/off button with her little finger. The toothbrush is not cheap....it is RM23.90 for one and the bristle head is not changeable. Nevertheless, it can last more than 6 months.

I think it is important to start brushing your child's teeth as soon as the first tooth appears as tooth decay occurs faster in children than in adults. By introducing teeth brushing to our child, it also help our child to develop a crucial habit which will last a lifetime.

The key to getting your child to brush is to make it fun!
