Hi Geetha jakkam please let her take her time while brushing. While it may be a tedious task handling her going all around the house when she brushes, but eventually she'll develop a liking for this and will start considering it as a daily activity to be done. Moreover, get her a fancy, colorful toothbrush and a tasty toothpaste to serve this purpose. Hope it helps.

Hi Geetha jakkam, I had also faced the similar situation with my kids. I turned brushing into a game, similar to the ones that you play to encourage her to eat. Persuade, rather than force, your kid to open her mouth. She needs to learn to like the idea of brushing. Give her lots of praise and encouragement when she does let you brush her teeth.

Hi Geetha. It is normal for a 2 year old not wanting to brush everyday. Instead of forcing her, let her play with the brush, chew on it. This also helps in cleaning the teeth to some extent. Get her a tasty toothpaste. Continue trying to brush her teeth even if shes not up for it everyday. It will change with time but dont give up, make it a fun activity.
