He knows how to spit it out but thinks it's funny to swallow it when we brush his teeth. I'm worried it's going to harm him somehow.

He'll be fine, obviously a whole tube in one sitting wpuldmt be a good idea but the tiny bit he swallows after a tooth brushing session won't do him any harm. Are you buying toothpaste specifically for his age?

Yes, the 0 - 2 year milk teeth one.
