I couldn't find the original post, but a week or so ago I saw a few moms suggest that an electric toothbrush was helpful in getting their toddlers to brush their teeth. I bought a cheap $10 one for my son and he loves it! It is still a little struggle to get him to let me 'help' when he is done brushing his teeth, but I feel like he is getting them a little cleaner than when he was fighting me so badly and I don't feel like I am traumatizing him with the struggle. I just wanted to say thanks for the tip!

With my daughter, to get her to let me help brush, I have her brush my teeth while I brush hers. Hope it helps!

It really seems to be helping. he loves to "tickle his teeth" with the tooth brush

oo good idea :) Maybe if my daughter starts giving me bunches of trouble again with brushing (thankfully for right now she's okay, at 14mo) I'll try that.
