How To Get Your Kids Brushing Their Teeth!!

Easy

This is a little embarrassing to admit, but I come from a long line of family members with bad teeth.

I swear I have had more fillings than I have teeth and our family has definitely sent a few dentists children off to college. lol

So when I had my own kids I knew it was going to be an uphill battle to keep their teeth healthy.

My little girl was the first one to start rebelling over brushing her teeth. She would brush for all of two seconds and then claim she was done.

No matter what I tried she just didn't want to brush her teeth long enough.

Her dentist gave her a little timer so she would know when two minutes was over.

And let me tell you... two minutes can feel like FOREVER!! I sat with her the first time she used her sand timer and I thought that last grain of sand was never going to fall! lol

I knew that if it felt like a long time for me, it probably felt even longer to my 4 year old.

Needless to say she stopped using the sand timer pretty quick and we were back at square one.

So when Mom It Forward approached me to try the ARM & HAMMER™ Tooth Tunes™ and also informed me I would be compensated for participation, I thought it was worth a try to see if it could remedy the problem. What mom doesn't deserve compensation when trying to get a stubborn 4 year old to do something they don't like doing. Laughing

And FYI getting paid didn't sway opinion of the product, all opinions are mine and crazy as usual!

The Arm & Hammer Tooth Tunes toothbrush encourages a 2 minute brushing time by playing music while your child is brushing their teeth.

Once the music stops, they can stop brushing. The first time she tried it she loved it! She was brushing her teeth along to the song and she didn't want to stop.

I found that she would push the button again and end up brushing for four minutes! Not that it was necessary, but I am just so excited that she loves it so much!

I love that I don't have to hover over her while she brushes, making sure she goes for 2 minutes.

As I pass by the bathroom I can hear if the song is really over and I know that she is doing it right.

Beware it also encourages dancing as well and you might end up with toothpaste all over! Laughing

Brushing teeth would always get lost in the shuffle of the morning for us, but not anymore. What kid wouldn't want to start out the day with music?!

Now it's the first thing she does as soon as she gets up, and her little brother copies her all the time and follows suit by brushing his teeth as well. BONUS!
