    Tooth Care- 18 month old

    Hi, my son is 18 months and all of a sudden he doesn't like getting his teeth brushed. My parents recommended still trying twice a day but when it doesn't work give him a Listerine Strip to help disinfect - has anyone else tried this?

    He doesn't seem to be interested in decorated toothbrushes or flavored (safe to swallow) toothpaste but he still refuses to let the brush in his mouth. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    This may sound mean but we had to do it with DD#1, we would pin her on the ground and force her mouth open. By the time she was 2yrs old she was more willing to open her mouth for us. Good luck!
