Then put him back on the tooth paste you can swallow till he learns or want to brush his teeth. It saves fighting with him. You have you pick your battles right? and I don't think its a big one.

good luck

You brush for him! My son is 15months old and I will brush his top & bottom teeth, then after I'm done brushing, I'll let him 'brush' for a minute, then we put up his toothbrush, and I let him turn off the bathroom lights. Same thing, everynight. Just gotta put him into a tooth brushing routine. :o) Hope you find something that works for you!
