Taking Care of Our Teeth

My son loved MAM pacifiers and bottles when he was small, so I was excited to try their line of oral care products for babies and toddlers.  My daughter tried the MAM First Brush, designed for ages 6 months and up.  She likes it because it's pink and I like it because it's small and easy for her to handle.  I also like how soft the bristles are, but my favorite feature is the the pink bristles on the brush that indicate the right amount of toothpaste for little ones. Did you know you're supposed to introduce toothpaste by age 2?  Both my kids like to put on their own toothpaste and of course want GLOBS of it on there, so this was a really nice visual for us.

This seemed like a good opportunity to read Bear's Loose Tooth.  Bear has a loose tooth and all his animal friends assure him that it's perfectly natural.  But they need to get that tooth out of there to make room for a new one to grow in!  Progressively larger animals try to get the tooth out for Bear.  When it's finally out, Bear gets a visit from a fairy who leaves him some blueberries in exchange for his tooth. 

We also did a quick craft.  I cut some yellow teeth from paper and my two year old "brushed" the tooth to make it white.  We used with a mixture of shaving cream and glue and an old toothbrush instead of a paint brush.

*I received some free samples of MAM oral care products in exchange for an honest review. (You can find MAM's facebook page here.)  Opinions are 100% mine.

  1. I love the brushing teeth activity! Simple and lots of fun! I might have to try that one with my little girl. We have a lot of trouble getting her to brush her teeth at the moment.
