Brushing your Toddlers Teeth Made Easy

The Reality of Brushing

Let’s face it, when it comes to brushing your toddlers teeth it can be a battle. And it used to be the same for me. I wanted to give you a few tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way, to help you master the art of getting your toddler to brush their teeth easily!

Create a Routine

This has been crucial for me in getting the girls to brush their teeth. I have made it a daily routine to brush our teeth as we wake and before we go to bed with one simple practice. “Lead by example.” My girls have always played monkey see, monkey do with me as long as I can remember. Anything I do, they want to do as well. Don’t underestimate the power of your influence around your children. This has worked wonders, and we all brush our teeth at the same time everyday, which makes it easier for me too.

Make it fun!

When we get out of bed each morning, the first thing I do is turn on some music. It get’s my day going and starts us off on a great note. After the girls help me fold the bed we dance over to the bathroom and continue our dance party as we brush our teeth. If it’s an especially rough day, I’ll sing their favorite songs as they brush or turn on the tv to get them distracted while they brush away. Anything you can do to make it a fun experience will make them want to continue coming back for more. We like to use the Burst Oral Care, BurstKids toothbrush. It’s colorful, has different brushing modes and is rechargeable.

Give them an Incentive

Now, this is one of the last things I do as I don’t like to bribe them too often. But sometimes if all else fails I will offer a little incentive. Wether that be a trip to the park that day, or some extra play time outside. A little incentive goes a long way, and can make all the difference.
