We bought our one year old daughter her first toothbrush. A tiny cute little one with soft bristles. My daughter is thrilled using the brush. But thereafter lies the challenge. She starts chewing the bristles and swallows the paste which she finds particularly yummy. Well, we can’t blame her. After encouraging her all her life to chew things and swallow, it can be a challenge teaching the kid to unlearn all those and do exactly the opposite. It’ll be fun alright.
