A 12-month-old bug has already grown 8 deciduous teeth. Recently, Chong Chong Ma intends to brush his teeth. But when her mother tried to put the finger cots into the insect's mouth, the insect always pushed her hand away... After many twists and turns, the insect started crying loudly, and her mother had no trouble with him, so she had to give up!
The troubles of Chong Chong mother, probably every mother will encounter. I often hear from doctors and experts that the care of deciduous teeth is very important. Babies must start brushing their teeth with a baby toothbrush when they are young... The problem is that babies are unwilling to brush their teeth and make it like a "war" every time. What else can the mother do?
To overcome this problem, we must first know what babies think about brushing their teeth.
Mom, what is this going to do?"
The vast majority of babies will not refuse to take a bath, but they will refuse to brush their teeth. The fundamental reason is that they don't know why their mother "caught" themselves to the bathroom!
In this case, mothers can borrow picture books, cartoons, etc., and the importance of "science popularization" with their children to brush their teeth, and let the baby know that the teeth also need to "bath"!
Don’t always think that the baby is still young, and I can’t get what the picture books and cartoons are saying... In fact, their understanding ability is much better than we think! If you can’t tell it once or watch it once, then repeat it several times. This is how children with good living habits are raised.
"Mom, you interrupted me to play!"
Step by step, fill water, squeeze toothpaste, greet the baby to come and brush their teeth... This is so boring, no wonder the babies refuse.
If you want to make brushing your teeth something that babies are willing to take the initiative to experience and try, then make it a game. for example--
When brushing your teeth, bring your baby's favorite doll, first "brush" the doll, and then brush your baby.
Or, dad brushes his teeth on the sidelines, transforms himself into a dramatist, thinking of attracting the baby to participate together, changing "passive" to "active"...
It can be said that making a baby fall in love with brushing is a technical job, which tests the patience and wisdom of the mother. Although in the process of trying, mothers may be repeatedly frustrated, but thinking that "toothache is very painful and it is expensive to see the dentist", mothers should not give up easily!
In addition, a mouthful of good teeth can also add points to your baby's appearance! Don't let a mouthful of yellow teeth and tooth decay become a stumbling block on the way for your baby to become handsome and beautiful!
