Nievel - posted on 03/31/2009 ( 15 moms have responded )
Hello everyone, my name is Nievel and I ama single mom of a 20 month old. My little angel was really good when we started brushing her teeth, but now it's a struggle. We get into the bathroom and all she wants to do is either play in the water or just suck the toothpaste of the toothbrush. I have tried allowing her to have her fun first then, trying to brush her teeth. But all she does is clamp her mouth shut and refuses to open up to let me brush. Do you have any suggestion on how I can get my little one to start brushing again?
Thanks in advance for all the help and advice.
