BUT, my 13 month old daughter has 5 big front teeth and I have recently noticed them looking like they need to be cleaned. I have a soft baby toothbrush and some junior tooth paste but my daughter refuses to open her mouth. I have tried letting her play with the tooth brush, I have tried showing her me brushing my teeth, my husband brushing his teeth. I have let her chew the tooth brush in the bath tub, in front of the mirror, standing in the bathroom. Nothing works.
How to I begin good dental hygeine with my daughter? How do I get those 5 precious teeth clean for her?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
