Finger Toothbrush

I know I should start brushing Sarah’s teeth as soon as they came out, but believe it or not, I just couldn’t find the right toothbrush somehow…

My intention is to buy a finger toothbrush. I tried to search for it from several places, either they sell kids toothbrush or if they do sell, they sell it at skyrocketing price. .

The other day when I saw Mummy Gwen talk about toothbrush for Gwen, we started to discuss this topic. Then Mery came along, after knowing that I have difficulty in finding the finger toothbrush, she insisted to buy one for Sarah (as a belated birthday gift)!

She was so kind that she mailed it all the way from Sibu, and finally I got it today…how sweet.



Besides the finger toothbrush, she also included few lovely hair clips for Sarah. I feel so touch and overwhelming when I received it.

Thanks Mery. I can’t wait to let Sarah use the finger toothbrush and to wear the clips on her.



P/S: Also thanks Mummy Gwen for providing useful tips and information regarding the toothbrush.

I bought one too and used that to clean Ryan's gum & tongue when he's few months old. But for now, he doesn't even want to open his mouth to let me clean it... I even gave him and he just bite on it. *sigh*

Kristie said...

ya this finger toothbrush is so soft... kids would love to bite it...now jayden bites whatever is near his mouth... i bet this would end up his toy as well!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Kristie - Yes, I was surprised when I touch the bristle. It is so so soft, so nice to be touch.
- Jayden loves to bite things now? Is he teething?

Agnes - Haha...so now Chloe is using normal toothbrush lor?
For me, I used cloth to clean Sarah's teeth all this while, luckily she did not bite me.

Rachel - I also used traditional method (cloth) to clean Sarah's teeth all this while, but sometimes I am afraid that I could not clean her teeth clean and thoroughly, therefore I decided to use finger toothbrush.

Kylie - I also not sure, but coz I am afraid Sarah could not adapt to the normal toothbrush, so I think better for me to start with finger toothbrush.
- So Sean is now using normal tooth brush?

Jesslyn - Your girls very guai, can use and adapt themselves in using the normal tooth brush.

Doreen - Woww...you start using finger toothbrush on Ryan at that early age ya, so good....
- So now how do you clean Ryan's teeth?

Mommy Gwen - Yes, I also did not know until Mery told me.
- Yeap, infact today I have started to clean Sarah's teeth with it.
- Thanks again Mommy Gwen.

Mummy Moon said...

I never try finger toothbrush before.. Yan YAn is using Pigeon tooth brush, She likes to play with it more than brushing her teeth...

the little prince said...

Initially I want to use the finger toothbrush cos my aunt gave it to me...but I misplace it....

Later I decided to buy the toothbrush from Pigeon brand, stage 2. I waited till BB got the 7th teeth then bought it. He quite like it and 'brush' by himself during shower time. He will request from me if I forgot to give me. May be before this, whenever I brush teeth, I will show him n tell him mummy 'gosok gigi' then he remember n now he want to 'gosok gigi' by himself!

Blessed mum said...

hmm...I never used finger toothbrush for my 3 kids, I started brushing they gum with those baby toothbrush and progress to kid's toothbrush once their teeth appear.

Kristie said...

joanne, i am really wondering too if he is teething? he is abt 3 1/2 mths now...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Mery - Thank you thank you. it is really a meaningful and special gift.

Kristie - I have read from mag and website, teething can start as early as 3 mths old.
Maybe you can observe Jayden whether he has teething symptom. If he is really having a first teeth, when he smile, sure cute!

Michelle - I think is good to start those normal toothbrush, but I just cant find it here.

Yugene - Kyle is very good and smart boy. Now he knows how to gosok gigi.

Mommy Moon - Hehe..Yan Yan thought the toothbrush is a new toy for her.
