Does your little one hate brushing their teeth? When my son, Braxton (now ten years old) was a toddler, there was nothing he hated more than brushing his teeth. It got to the point that I would have to lay him on his back and pin him down, using the opportunity of his screaming to get the dang toothbrush in his mouth. He sounded like a wounded chimpanzee, and I felt horrible having to practically wrestle with my baby to give his teeth a good cleaning.
Thankfully, a doctor who is also a Mommy, developed a unique and fun way to make teeth brushing fun for kids! It is called The Brushies.
The Brushies is the world’s first finger puppet toothbrush for infants and toddlers. The book and puppet system makes a once challenging daily routine fun, setting kids up with a healthy habit for life and turning what’s often a battle of wills into a beautiful bonding routine.
With dental decay topping the charts as the number one chronic childhood condition in the world today, the two doctor moms behind The Brushies took it upon themselves to drill a dent in this unhealthy epidemic and make brushing fun for all.
What it is: The Brushies is an adorable set of finger puppets that have gentle bristles that are perfect for a baby's and toddler's little mouths. Each Brushies finger puppet is a cute little character that your child will love. The Brushies helps your child feel more at ease with brushing their teeth. You can purchase the finger puppet toothbrushes individually, or in a set that comes with a fun story book.
You can't go wrong with Willa the Whale, Momo the Monkey, Pinky the Pig, or Chomps the Dino! You can add a little bit of toothpaste, or just use water at first, until your child is accustomed to the feel of the brush in their mouth.
Fun Fact: Can you believe that it is recommended to start brushing baby's teeth (or just their gums) at 4 weeks old?
