  • Try a different flavor toothpaste with a small, child-sized toothbrush.

  • Yes, with my last one it was awful. It took 10 min or more just to get the job done. I feel for you.

  • I wake up, brush my teeth, puke, go get some ginger snaps or crackers, rest a little while and then brush my teeth again. Then I'm fine. They say the main cause of morning sickness is because of hunger, whether you feel hungry or not.
