tried gum for the first time and my son hated it-he was gagging-he has some oral motor issues for which he gets speech for. We tried 3 different brands/flavors-all with the same reaction. Other than the gum and toothpaste, how else can I get xylitol onto his teeth?

Spry makes a xylitol gel for kids that can be eaten. I just rub it on DD's teeth every evening before bed after I brush her teeth. It comes In "regular" which is just sweet like sugar and "strawberry banana" flavor which tastes nice. It's a thin gel kind of like K-Y jelly and I've been giving it to my daughter since she was a baby. She loves it.


This is the old bottle for babies:



And this is what I give her now:



You can get it much cheaper without the banana brush to go with it.
