Oral Care: Brushing Kid's Teeth

I'm not sure if it is working or not (because I don't know where Jack Jack has kept his toothbrush after this). I just know that he's interested and happy while we were brushing his teeth.

First we watched these toothpaste commercials on YouTube:

Then I took Jack Jack to the bathroom with me. Put a bit of his toothpaste on his toothbrush. Did the same thing on mine. Showed him how to do it. Handed his toothbrush to him. Sing a bit of the ad commercial while brushing. Works like magic!

Problem occurred when he didn't want to stop brushing. He'd cry if I take the toothbrush away so I let him hold it for a while. Next thing I know, the toothbrush is nowhere in sight!

We have tried to find where the toothbrush went to no avail. Time to buy another one. I'll try remember not to leave it with him no matter what.


  1. Haha! Cute Jack Jack. Jamjam too loves watching those Colgate ads. She also loves watching me and Hubby brush our teeth. I know she's curious and would like to try it herself but she's just too young! She's 10 months old by the way.

  2. it always makes me wonder why kids love specific commercials and not others. what's in it? anyways, it's fun to watch them watch the commercials. like they can comprehend it already!
