My little boy, Dylan is going to turn one in 2wks. Right now, Dylan has 6 teeth and as they started to appear, i used a gum massager to soothe his gums and get him used to shape (it has a toothbrush like handle) he was fine until all the teeth were out and clearly needed brushing. i tried brushing with just water first, but now he will cry himself sick to avoid it. i've tried brushing his teeth after feeding him and if he weren't buckled in, he might've pushed himself out of the chair. i don't brush dylan's teeth right now since he equates his high chair with the unpleasantness of tooth brushing. did i start too early? did i even need to brush his teeth until they've all come out?
