OK Internet, I am asking for your wisdom and experience; How in the world do you brush a toddler's teeth??? We have the fancy toothbrush and the fancy toothpaste - we let her try, and she only eats the toothpaste. We try, and she will kick and scream and try to buck off the changing table. Short of sedation, we have tried everything. Our current method includes pinning her down WWF style and trying to get the brush in her mouth between screams.
I am so frazzled on this... I don't want to traumatize her with the toothbrushing, yet she absolutely needs it done. Her little teeth get grimy just like mine do. I don't want her to have baby cavities and have to suffer the dentist chair. HELP! Pretty much all forms of advice are welcome here, so don't be afraid to comment!
