How can I encourage my lil one to brush her teeth because she always refused when I tried to brush her teeth?

let her try it on her own i had to do this with my daughter then when she says she done ask her and see if you can do it. this worked on my daughter it might work on yours but every kid is different

lol i can relate. just a few suggestions; make it fun, brush together and maybe have races, make up games, let her pick out her own toothbrush, try that mouthwash that changes colors and shows if there is anything left on there teeth. good luck

my 14 month old would not let me brush her teeth at first but i got the Sesame Street baby origel gum and tooth cleaner and she likes the tast and i even put the finger tooth brush on the end of the sesame street toothpaste and let her chew on it to get use to it. she is now trying to do it herself.

believe me I totally understand. My 2 years old son refuses to let me bush he's teeth in the mourning. what did work for me, while am bushing my teeth i gave him his own bush to do the same. compliment him while his brushing and make it fun, i think that will be a good start for your baby girl. Hopefully that help.
