Brushing My 13 1 2 Month Old S Teeth

ImpatientMommy - August 12

She opens her mouth when she sees the tooth brush, she lets me brush her bottom 3 teeth no problem and sometimes even thinks it's funny but the SECOND I turn the brush upwards she freaks out. I really think it hurts her for some reason, I only get a few little swipes in of her top 4 teeth but she freaks out and if you could hear her you'd think it was really hurting her or making her feel uncomfortable. I feel bad but I try to get what I can in which is NOT very much. What do I do?? She'll be really cranky and cry on and off for like 10 minutes afterwards... I know she's teething, maybe she's teething on the top and the tooth brush irritates it or something? I'm worried because I don't want her teeth to get bad, I mean I can't imagine the few little swipes I get in on the top does much for her so I'm worried about her teeth. Should I be worried??? I even let her hold her tooth brush to chew on during the day hoping it does something haha

Perhaps try one of those finger tip brushes--I have a 13 month old and we brush with that. She loves it and giggles when I brush, plus she likes it ma__saging her gums since she's teething.

i agree with littlekmom,, try using the soft fingertip brush,, i think its gentler and much softer on her gums since she doesnt have all her teeth yet

Thank you sooo much! I never even thought of those finger brushes. I'm gonna go to CVS today and look for them, are their different brands? Does it matter which ones I get?

there are many brands out there..but i guess they're all similar..some have a plastic box so u can store it in and some dont.. glad we offered some help :) GL
