Used the finger toothbrushes you can get - the Dentinox toothpaste comes with one in the box.

I have the clear thing from sainsburys too, it is brilliant and saves lots of teeth brushing battles!

We use a clear rubber toothbrush that I bought in Sainsbury's and give it to him to chew - it has rubber bristles and is sort of the shape of a little gum. Basically by chewing it his teeth get a good rubbing. So we rarely need to do anything ourselves.

I asked my dentist about cleaning his teeth and expained what we do and she said it was fine and not to bother with toothpaste until he's about 2 because at this age he'll just swallow it. The main thing is to rub the teeth - she suggested rubbing with a bit of cloth if they'll let it.

DS will not let me near. He is happy to hold the toothbrush himself and even sook off the toothpaste but no entry to anyone else.
