Healthy Teeth!

I came across this lovely Healthy Teeth Guide that includes a teeth eruption chart, and information on taking care of our kids teeth!

Cleaning gums before teeth eruption sets the stage for your infant to trust you in her mouth.  If there is trust and practice, your infant is more likely to become a toddler who will let you take a turn brushing her teeth.  At my house, we occasionally play “dentist” where the girls lay on the bed with their head in my lap so it is easier for me to floss their teeth.   Good practice for the real dentist visit!

Any other tips?
