When to start using....

regular toothpaste? My son is now over two years old. He loves brushing his teeth. He's gotten very good at spitting. Recently I got him some kid's mouthwash; he does really good with the mouthwash. The other day I saw some fun flavored toothpaste for children, and almost bought it... But I'm still not sure if he's totally ready for the fluoride-free kind. So I was wondering when some of you made the switch...

  • Once they can swish and spit, you can use regular toothpaste. All that is needed for anyone is a pea size amount. Just watch that your child doesn't swallow the toothpaste.
