ok, be honest. how often do you brush your toddlers teeth? i try for once a day, after that last bit of food/ milk/ juice, just before bed. I have a toddler toothbrush that i let him chew on basicaly, then i have that baby finger brush, that i try to do, tho he has learned how to bite hard, and which teeth are the sharpest to use, and then the other little rubber toothbrush with "bristles" on each side. we normaly fight over the toddler tooth brush, and i have to have daddy hold him down while i scrub quickly. then i let him chew on either the toddler or the rubber one. it is a major hassel, and some nights i just dont remember or dont feel like the fight.
what do you do? i have tried the brush with me thing, not interested. he'll chew the brush for a sec, then throws it down. are your's brushing ( like really brushing) on their own, or you still have to do it?
