So, I finally got Ellie to love brushing her teeth. She actually likes it so much, that I don't have to beg her to get out of the bath tub.(and we all know how much she loves the bath)
I use to use a regular kids tooth brush, but have upgraded her to a battery operated one that spins. It's a Spongebob one and she loves it! She really likes to put the toothpaste on too. I'm still using 'swallowable' toothpaste as she doesn't really get the whole spitting thing - that might be a good thing though. So, if you are having problems with brushing, try the spinning kind. She giggles and thinks it's funny, it probably tickles too.
