Sophie's Style: Toothbrushing Sophie Style

Father, Mother, Brother Sister...How do you brush your teeth?

One of my greatest fear is treating my own family with tooth problems, because they shouldn't have any in the first place. If any of them does, it's going to be a slap on my face, I treat other people's tooth problems so I shouldn't neglect my own familys health right? Luckily for us, Sophia brushing her teeth came naturally for her. 

When I gave birth to Sophia, she already has 2 incisors (front teeth) which finally came out a few weeks later. But Little S started brushing as soon as the new two incisors appeared, that's like when she was 5 months old, it was me who did the brushing at first of course. When she was 8 months old that's the time she started brushing on her own.

Last Christmas I bought her a new toothbrush from firefly. And she really loves it. Now, she's the one to remind us that it's already brushing time. Perfect! diba? 

I already have the makings of an independent child.  :)

Here are a few reminders:

  • never neglect your babies temporary teeth, they are as important as the permanent. 
  • around 5 - 7 years old, the first permanent molars erupt. Never think that it's still temporary because it didn't replace any temporary tooth. That's because they really don't. They just erupt without replacing any tooth.
  • As always prevention is better than cure. Brush your children's teeth every after meal. As soon as they have teeth they can already visit their dentist.
  • Make their first dental visit non-traumatic, meaning don't just see the dentist when your already in pain. See your dentist twice a year.
Sophie turning the light on
The cool brush is very effective on children. Why? because it has  cool designs, it has a LED light that blinks for one minute ( the duration of  how long your child should brush) 1 minute for the upper teeth and one minute for the lower teeth. But most importantly they have soft bristles meaning easy on the gums and enamel.

As soon as the lights stop blinking, Sophie wouldn't stop brushing still. She would just turn the light back on and brush again and keeps looking at the mirror while she brush and exclaims her non stop "WOW"

Here's Sophie and her beloved Firefly Hello Kitty design Toothbrush.

So inlove with the blinking lights
