Teach Me Toothbrush Set
I was pretty nerdy as a kid, and nerdiness and good dental hygiene seem to go hand in hand. I did everything in my power to not get a cavity, as I wanted a mouth filled with literal "pearly whites." I even went so far as to agree with my mom that sugared cereals should be banned from our pantry. Lucky Charms and Apple Jacks ran a distant second behind my clean dental record.
Of course I am going to pass my love of brushing on to Olivia, and I have found the perfect product for us: The Teach Me Toothbrush Set. Two BPA free toothbrushes come in this set, one designed for parents to use alongside their children, to instruct them on proper brushing techniques. (Maybe I'll even dig up my old headgear and retainer! Yeah, right.)
These brushes are very cleverly designed. The center bristles are a different color to denote how much toothpaste to use, the handle grips are non-slip, the soft-rounded head of the baby's brush protects their delicate gums and mouth tissue, and the soft bristles protect their mouths from irritation and keep their tooth enamel unharmed. The parent's brush tip features a massage component to clean baby's tongue and soothe gums during teething.
The Teach Me Toothbrush Set is designed for babies 6 months and older. They are available in vibrant pink, blue and green colors.
I can't say I still avoid sugar, but I can say with great pride that I have never had a cavity. I'm going to go floss now.
