Toddlers are pretty easy to please. They like anything that looks cool or electronics of any kind. But even more than that, you need to pay attention to how a toothbrush will feel because if it’s painful in any way, you’ll have a fight on your hands when you try to convince your toddler to brush their teeth again.Here are some of the things you should pay attention to when you are toothbrush shopping for your child.
- Look For Soft Bristles: You don’t want this to seem like a torture session in which their gums are left shredded and bleeding. You’re trying to get them to clean their teeth — not take off the enamel. And because their gums are already feeling inflamed from teething, children’s toothbrushes should always have soft bristles. It’s all they need to properly clean their teeth.
- Find Great Colors Or Characters: If your child adores Dora the Explorer, she’ll want to try brushing her teeth if you give her a toothbrush with Dora and Boots on it. Your child’s love for cartoon characters is one of the best things you can exploit when trying to get them to try new things.
- How Easily They Can Hold It: When you’re picking out a toothbrush, remember how little a toddler’s hands are. Some toothbrushes, especially electronic toothbrushes, have big fat handles on them. Those handles can prove to be too much for a child to hold. You want a thinner handle that will fit comfortably in their hands.
- How Well The Toothbrush Head Fits In Your Child’s Mouth: Make sure that you pick out a toothbrush for your child’s current age. If you have a 2-year-old and you size up to buy a toothbrush for an older child, it won’t fit comfortably in your child’s mouth. You don’t want an overly large toothbrush to gag your child.
