thats not strictly true, my daughter hates the toothbrush on her teeth. she likes to chew, suck, brush mummy's teeth... anything else but actual brushing!
we started out great and she would open her mouth to let me get a quick brush in before i let her have a go. we'd sing the toothbrush song (ch ch ch ch, i brush my teeth) and she loved it, but now the novelty's worn off its a complete struggle.
i'm worried its going to become something she fears if i keep pushing it when she doesn't want it but i'm also aware of the number of pre-school kids having to have teeth extracted due to cavities.
i've also tried with a flannel to no avail.
any ideas mums? any help will be gratefully accepted!
