Preserve your sanity
Sky has been holding down the fort here at VF while I have been (among other things) struggling with my toddler on many fronts, one of them being brushing his teeth. While usually we can cajole him into completing the task this sweet kids toothbrush that he picked out at Whole Foods has helped immensely:
They are great, not only are they adorable, but it really helps to talk about the animals as we are brushing. It makes the whole process a bit easier. Plus they are made from recycled materials, BPA free and you can get a toothbrush subscription. Your toddler might actually look forward to getting a new toothbrush every few months, and run right in to use it every night until the next one comes.
