Parker HATES having her teeth brushed so I use <a href="http://www.tomsofmaine.com/toms/product.asp?dept_id=300&pf_id=LTP-GG" target="_blank">this</a> Tom's of Maine liquid toothpaste without Flouride (she gets drops a couple times a week). She seems to like the flavor though I still have to sit on her to brush her teeth! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I'm subscribing, because my baby is getting teeth and I'm intereseted what you all use.<br>
Also, do you use a special kind of brush or just your finger?

With my kids, I have always used just water and an infant toothbrush (just a small, very soft bristled toothbrush) until they are old enough to begin practicing on their own. Then I used a child-safe, flouride free toothpaste, that was safe to be swallowed. When they got the hang of brushing & spitting, I moved to Tom's of Maine silly strawberry toothpaste.

I have a small brush, and usually just use water. I tried putting just a bit of baking soda on it, but he balked at the taste.<br><br>
We had a doc appointment Friday, and my doc said BS or water was fine too.
