Baby See, Baby Do

Aiden is now 14 months old. This age is definitely an adventure. Aiden studies everything so intently and wants to to everything we are doing. Aiden see, Aiden do. He sees me with a comb and immediately he wants to brush his hair. He sees me blow my nose and he wants a tissue to try it too. He has seen us put his shoes and socks on so now he wants to "help." Most recently he has developed a love for brushing his teeth. He now requests to brush his teeth every time we walk into the bathroom or he sees his toothbrush. "Br, Br, Br..." That means it's time to brush.

Since he didn't start getting teeth until he turned one, I hadn't had to get him a toothbrush so when the time came to get one I had no idea what kind to buy. Thankfully I received Nuby's 4 Stage Baby Oral Care System just in time. It comes with 4 different stages of brushes perfectly designed to help your baby with each stage of oral development. We are currently using the Stage 3 brush, which is made of silicone and acts as both a teether and tooth brush for my teething baby. It is easy for Aiden to hold himself and is great on his gums and new teeth. I add a little of Tom's Toddler toothpaste and Aiden will brush and brush and brush.

Now if only we could get him to figure out the difference between what he uses to brush his hair and his teeth. This sometimes causes an issue. Haha.

When did you start brushing your baby's teeth?

What a sweet little guy! That's great that he is excited to brush his teeth. Sometimes it can be such a fight with kiddos! He's starting out on the right foot (tooth?).

Oh the sweetness!!!!!
We let our kids chew on a toothbrush when they could sit on their own and helped brush

Addi is obsessed with brushing her teeth, but more so just sucking out the toothpaste than actually brushing!
