Tackling Teeth with Brush-Baby + Dental Set Giveaway! {CLOSED}

Thursday, 16 February 2017

We've all been there. Chasing your toddler around the house, toothbrush in hand. Trying every way possible to get their mouth open, trying to brush their teeth. Then when they do finally let you in, they clamp their teeth shut... Game over.

Teething is hard enough.

So protecting those teeth when they finally pop through, shouldn't be hard too. 


And that's when Brush-Baby comes in.
"Brush-Baby began as one mother’s journey to introduce good oral hygiene habits to her child. She found that there was little available to help mothers; nothing to clean baby mouths, teethers and toothbrushes that were too large or too hard and that many teething toddlers chewed just the toothbrush." 
They designed their own range of products - especially made for babies, toddlers and young children. Products that took into account tooth development, children's habits and brushing skills. To hopefully not only make toothbrushing easier and enjoyable, but to help protect those important little teeth.

We were sent a range of different products from their three stages - baby, toddler and child. The Dental Wipes are not something we could really use, as Parker has far too many teeth for it to be safe for my finger (he's a biter!), but they are a clever idea.


The Chewable toothbrush has been a huge hit though. The silicone brush helps clean teeth and gums while your baby / toddler chews - it's design means it's perfect for little mouths, as it can reach right back to those pesky molars. It's been brilliant while Parker is teething too.

The Babysonic Toothbrush is something I was unsure about. An electric toothbrush for a baby? But it's been brilliant! P loves the light vibrations, giggling whenever we bring the toothbrush out. He's actually let us brush his teeth a lot easier. Although he's still too young to sit for the full 2 minutes.


Combined with their Teething Toothpaste (which is specially formulated with camomile to soothe during the teething stage), toothbrushing hasn't been easier! The toothbrush comes with two heads so it can grow with your baby too, which is a bonus.

Overall we've really enjoyed using these Brush-Baby products, and they've definitely helped our toothbrushing situation. Fancy trying them for yourself? Enter via the Gleam widget below for a chance to win a Brush Baby dental care set in your age of choice!


Disclosure - We received these products for the purpose of this review. However all options are honest and my own.
