i dont know anything about childrens tooth paste.

Lillys teeth have been looking dark and weak and just dingy.. i brush her teeth every morning and night i use to use her thomas the train training tooth paste but i realized it had sucralose in it so i stopped and switched her to my tooth paste - extra strength sensodine with extra fluoride which is minty and has a SLIGHT burn so obviously any two year old isnt going to be a fan.
what toothpaste do you use on your tots little pearlys? flavor?

We use the Colgate (or is it Crest?) kids toothpaste for both kids.
Technically DD isn't supposed to use it yet, because she's not 2 until next month, but I think she'll live :lol:

Can she spit effectively? You can also make your own toothpaste but they won't taste as yummy.

Too much will have the opposite effect. Fluoride is horrible for everyone. And she's probably getting fluoride from your tap water at home too.

Toothpaste here is diff I think. As long as its not fluoridated it is fine. They don't want it swallowed. But if assume if they market it 0-2 its fine. We have baby toothpaste and toddler training toothpastes then children's toothpaste.

The one we have now is 2 and up, the ones she used to have were 0-2, the toddler ones, but they don't seem like they're as effective to me, once the kid has a mouth full of teeth, lol .
