With three little ones, getting all of their tiny teeth brushed can be a bit of a pain. They all need help, and they don't want it. I generally give in and let them do it themselves and try to help as they go along. This isn't always effective and usually gets pretty messy.
When we were given the opportunity to try Spiffies toothwipes, I was intrigued. And when they arrived? Well, I was wishing I'd heard of them sooner! I was a little skeptical as to whether the kids would let me swipe around in their mouth with a wipe, and if they would like the flavors. (Kids can be picky, especially mine!) I was absolutely AMAZED when all three of them let me use Spiffies toothwipes and they all said, in their own way, "Mm, that's good!"
Talker Man (age 5): "Mommy, those wipe things taste really good, are they really getting the germs out of my teeth? They tasted delicious!"
Little Man (age 2): "Mmm, good! More, please?"
Little Miss Princess (age 1): "Mmm!"
We were sent Spiffies toothwipes in two flavors, apple and grape. The kids love BOTH flavors and liked being able to choose which one they wanted after their meals.
To use the wipes, you simply tear open the packet and wrap the toothwipe around your finger. (I would have pictures, but it's a little hard to hold a camera and do teeth at the same time!) You then wipe the inside of your child's mouth; gums and teeth, cheeks and tongue. It's super simple and you can do it quickly. I REALLY wish I'd known about these when the babies were new, it would make after-nursing gum cleaning so much easier! Talker Man could do it himself after I wrapped the wipe around his finger, but Little Man and Little Miss Princess needed me to do it.
Spiffies also has I Can Brush Tooth-Brushing Liquid. Stop the tooth-brushing tears and unnecessary battles with Spiffies I Can Brush. The 100% natural tooth-brushing liquid is rich in the cavity fighter Xylitol. Fluoride-free and paraben-free, Spiffies I Can Brush is not gritty or pasty and has a taste kids absolutely love! Safe for babies older than 6 months of age and toddlers, this all-natural tooth-brushing liquid was created by pediatrician Ray Wagner, MD. The xylitol rich tooth-brushing solution is available in a delicious grape flavored solution that has a pleasant taste that your child will like, and little ones will actually WANT to brush their teeth once they try the "I Can Brush" solution.
Dr. Wagner recommends that you put some solution in a small cup and let your child dip their toothbrush into it and brush for a few minutes. You should be there to support, encourage and finish the brushing, but impromptu tests show that children love to brush with I Can Brush and it's important to have a positive first experience with tooth-brushing. As it is both paraben and fluoride-free, there is no harm to your child if a small amount is actually swallowed. Learn more at http://www.spiffies.com/Toddlers-s/4.htm.
We didn't actually get to try this out, but it's on my "Need to try" list! I think it sounds great for the boys. I've used Xylitol toothpaste for them in the past, but it was unflavored and they didn't really like it. The grape flavor would probably be well loved, especially since it's probably just like the toothwipes!
