I started weaning my baby onto solids at around 6 months. At that stage she still didn’t have any teeth, but they soon started to show under the gums and all the key signs of teething began – dribbling, chewing on everything, putting her fingers in her mouth and sleepless nights due to teething pains.
My baby’s bottom left tooth was the first to break through the gums, followed a few days later by the bottom right tooth. They looked so adorable and her smile changed, instantly looking less like a baby.
With the introduction of solids and teeth it was time to find the best baby toothbrush!
The Baby Ono – Safe Silicone Finger Toothbrushis safe and easy to use. It’s made of soft 100% food grade silicone and fits on your finger. You can add a little Baby Toothpaste to the bristles and very gently massage it over your baby’s teeth and gums.
I found my baby enjoyed chewing on the toothbrush with my finger in it, which proved a great way to clean her teeth and gums. It’s very soft so it won’t hurt your baby’s gums and can be used to massage the gums during teething to help ease discomfort.
The Brush-Baby Chewable Toothbrushis made of 100% safe silicone and is BPA free. Suitable from 0 months old to 3 years, it fits accurately in baby’s mouth to provide the right amount of cleansing of the teeth and gums. As well as helping to clean teeth and massage gums, the Brush-Baby toothbrush can also be used to soothe teething gums when chewed.
I use Green People Organic Baby Toothpaste which my baby loves the taste of and it’s 100% safe if swallowed. It’s natural, organic and without fluoride so you can be sure there are no nasties in it. It’s recommended by midwives and suitable for babies and children.
