Which toothpaste for toddlers? (SLS and paraben free)

Hi all,

Can someone please recommend a toothpaste for my almost 3 yo DS which contains the least amount of nasty stuff, but still has the recommended fluoride?
We used to use the brushbaby tooth paste as it was SLS free, but then I realised that it contained parabens shock .... so I've moved onto an OralB toothpaste, but it does contain SLS... I am concerned as DS loves swallowing his toothpaste sad

TIA smile

We use Tom of Maine's Silly Strawberry toothpaste. It has 1000 ppm fluoride which I believe is the recommended amount. Unfortunately, it seems to have been withdrawn from the UK market - I used to buy it in my local health food shop but they can't get hold of it any more. However, I now buy it through from a US supplier. Kingfisher do a child's toothpaste (with fluoride if I remember correctly) but my two DC don't like the mint flavour...

We use Tom's too, but we use the adult one as kids are a bit older and they don't mind the mint. Amazon is a great place to order natural products, we get Jason shampoo and shower gel, not sure if they do toothpaste though.

The Kingfisher toothpastes are great, not a nasty in them, and are available from Holland & Barrett. I love the fennel-flavoured one, but my kids didn't!
