Better to get a silicon brush thing DS can chew on Option a
One that goes over my finger like a thimble Option B

Or a regular baby toothbrush like a smaller adults one?

Help!

Our 9mo has this one: www.amazon.co.uk/Perfectly-Happy-People-Silicone-Toothbrush/dp/B000NC6HGQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=baby&qid=1309900121&sr=8-2

I guess it's similar to your option a, but looks more like a normal toothbrush. DS loves chewing on it and it's as good as new still after three months' twice-daily use.

I tried one of those thimble ones and they are rubbish. It's quite difficult to get the angle of your finger right to actually get to the teeth without being double jointed.

We just started off with the free one that came with our free bag of goodies at the hospital.

I imagine you will get little bruises on your finger if you use option b when you DC bites down.

I use a normal toothbrush, but when DD doesn't cooperate, I use option A as something is better than nothing. So regular toothbrush with option A as a backup.
