Hi Lisa... in my case I tried all these things but didn't worked. I noticed she didn't allow early in morning but when I tried during bath time she did allowed me. I understood that's not the correct time. But I let her adjust with the process and gradually I managed to change her brushing habit to morning. 2nd thing I wanted to say is children learn from their family members. Make sure your baby watch you while brushing. Show her how you are enjoying as well as keep telling the importance of brushing. It will generate interest. Wish you good luck

hi Lipsa! kids sometimes test our patience. haha . you could try out this method. ask him what sound does a lion make? he will open his mouth any say "roaaaaaarrrrr. you could immediately put a brush in his mouth. how does the lion want his teeth to look ? he will say "shining". yes keep praising and say' lion s' teeth is sparkling with a shine'. so keep him engaged in the conversation and keep praising him if he replies . don't fret if he doesn't respond. u keep going on and on. positive feedback and praise holds the key, don't get angry or loose your temper as that will put him off. I am sure your lion will be tamed at least in this matter. do give your feedback.

the best way to help yourself for this is allow your child ....that he will do urs and you will do his.... by this he will easily allow you to brush his teeth

U can engage him in talks. Otherwise brush him with your fingure. while using fingure you can force a little by holding his head from back.

hi Lipsa, for first 2 mints let him do after that you can do by showing him rhymes on brushing or singing yourself. Introduce some flavoured toothpaste and designed brush.
