    Brushing teeth and throwing up

    I try and brush my teeth and I throw up. I can't use toothpaste because that just makes it worse. I always wait about an hour or two after I eat so I don't throw up as much.

    Anyone else have this problem and what did you do?

    I had that problem with DS. I found if I sipped on ginger ale and ate 2 saltines before I even got out of bed, then used mouthwash, then GENTLY brushed my teeth with a mild mint paste, not gel toothpaste I was ok. I did not have the same problem this time around. Hope you find out what works for you!

    Hi! I'm lurking from the 3rd trimester. I'm still having problems with this as well and I have found that the cinnamon flavored toothpaste is a little better for me and I try not to use a huge amount. The more it foams the worse it is.

    Thanks ladies. I've been brushing my teeth before I eat with a small amount of toothpaste. I find that I can brush a little longer. I brush again after I eat without toothpaste. It seems to help some. It is nice to know that this is something i'll have to deal with the entire pregnancy.

    Hi Beckie,
    I decided to use my 4 yr olds bubble gum toothpaste after having an awful week of brushing and Nassau. It has worked great and seems to clean just as good! Hope it helps!

    I bought some cinnamon flavor toothpaste and It seems to be helping. I've thought about trying toothpaste for kids because it's milder, but I don't think I could do the bubble gum flavor.
