We’ve been an Orajel family for over 6 years. We started with Baby Orajel Tooth and Gum Cleanser when Quinn was a baby. I liked it because I didn’t have to worry about him swallowing it since it was sugar-free and fluoride-free. I knew practicing with a toothbrush was essential but didn’t realize how essential until Quinn was a toddler.
Quinn’s biggest freak out always involved teeth brushing and hair cuts. He’d scream and cry like we were torturing him. It was awful for everyone. He eventually (it seems like it took forever) grew out of that phase. We used a baby toothbrush much more consistently with Elliot a few years later and he’s always been a champ when brushing teeth. He’s never been afraid of it and will happily brush his teeth on his own (with reminders of course). 😉
I think good oral hygiene takes practice and repetition for little kids. Orajel has always helped the process by making gentle products with fun, familiar characters for every stage of oral development. From teething babies to little kids brushing on their own, they’ve got you covered.
Elliot was excited to see Gil and Molly on his new toothbrush and toothpaste, we are fans of the Bubble Guppies! In fact Quinn was a little jealous of the toothbrush but was happy to share the new toothpaste with Elliot. Honestly, I find cartoon advertising on consumer products annoying most of time but love it on Orajel. Whatever it takes to get kids excited about brushing their teeth is A-OK by me. Maybe cartoon characters should sell veggies too. I might have a better shot at the boys eating them more consistently. 😉
