Brushing Your Toddler’s Teeth | Single Mom Experience

Where has the time gone ? My little one is now 18 months and has a FULL grill ! It’s like , one day she had two and overnight she had 15 ! Ok I’m being dramatic but they all came in so fast! I must say I’m lucky to not have any horror stories about teething. It went so smoothe that I wouldn’t even notice a new tooth was present until the tickle monster had her gasping for air in between laughs! I don’t know about you but this growing process is moving way too fast for me and I just want her to STOP!!!! Geez! Get back in my belly for god sake lol. Whenever I say that, people look at me crazy. There, I knew she was safe at all times. There, I knew she wasn’t faced with the ugly of the world. All she knew was Mommy ! But, that’s never happening. So days like this I just chalk it up to the game. Here I am teaching my 18 month old how to brush her teeth. So motherhood here we go ! My first teeth brushing experience went, well, surprisingly easy lol. I was scared she would swallow the toothpaste (which she prob did at some point) but she still followed my instructions. I brushed my teeth FIRST while she sat on the counter and watched. I danced and just made it fun. Then I loaded up her cute little toothbrush and we did it together. Listen...when she spit out her toothpaste afterwards, I felt like a proud ass mama! In my head I’m like, yooooo you’re the smartest kid in the world. Mind = blown ! (Says every mama ever ) Just throw me on the bandwagon of moms who think they’re kid is the best at everything they do haha! If you’re planning your first teeth brushing experience, here’s what I used : Toothbrush - I loved this toothbrush because it has a triple-brush head that cleans front, back and biting surfaces all at once.

All the things a vegan Mommy loves !
