    I've always made a habit of brushing mine at the same time so she can see it's part of a daily routine.
    I also let her play with her toothbrush aswell so she could explore putting it in her mouth herself. She now brushes her own teeth and she let's me just give them a quick going over xx

    We brush at the same times everyday - whilst he's sat in his highchair after being cleaned up after brekkie and same after his dinner. At first, he absolutely hated having his teeth brushed and cried at the sight of the toothbrush! But he loves it now.. He 'helps' me by holding the toothbrush and chuckles away!! Haha xx

    My lo is 6 months and her first tooth popped through the other day. What I do is give her her toothbrush with a teeny bit toothpaste on it when shes in the bath. She has a good chew on it xx

    I give my girl a chewable toothbrush in the morning after her first bottle

    At night before her last bottle we brush using a dry baby toothbrush and toothpaste. Just a tiny little bit of toothpaste though

    Yeah...its swallowed but its just a teeny bit of toothpaste she gets so wont do any harm. I make sure I give her tooth a wee scrub first then let her play with the toothbrush. It gets sucked and chewed to death lol xx

    I clean Toby's in the bath at night in the morning we clean together. He won't let me brush his teeth at all, so at the moment he's just chewing it x
