  • use a wash cloth on your finger rather than a brush for right now. Let her play with the tooth brush and get used to it.

  • Search online for some videos for her to watch, let her pick out her own toothbrush, while brushing yours, let her watch or help you, and just be creative and make it fun.

  • Sing a song, let her brush, use an electric toothbrush

  • Start by letting her get used to the feel of your finger on her gums and the taste of a tiny bit of baby safe toothpaste.
