You may not think about it when baby has no teeth but it is just a matter of time before they start popping through the gum and you need to start practicing good habits to keep those little pearly whites clean and white. There are a variety of options to help keep you on track when it comes to cleaning their teeth and reducing the possibilities of cavities as they get older. Brilliant Baby Products generously sent me the Disney Simply Spoutless Cup, Milkies Food Trays and 2 Baby Teether for the purpose of this review.
You may not think that what your child eats or drinks prior to getting teeth would effect their dental hygiene but it really does. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and having good oral health is vital in a child’s development. There are lots of ways to be practical about baby’s oral hygiene and here are some great ways to get started.
If you plan to make your own baby food, then Milkies Food Trays are a must. I remember making my own baby food for my daughter because I didn’t want all the preservatives and other junk in her food but I did not have the option of Milkies Food Trays available so I could freeze baby’s food. This is a great idea and what a time saver. The food trays are made from BPA-free and phthalate-free food safe plastic and is sectioned into 1 ounce servings. There are two trays per package and is available online.
Using the Milkies Food Trays, gives you the option of which foods you feed your child and is a perfect serving size so there is hardly any wasted food. Unlike jar food at the grocery store, if you child does not eat the whole thing you usually have to discard what was not eaten which to me is a total waste of our hard-earned money. My daughter is making her baby food with a variety of vegetables and fruits and she just pops out which entrée she wants, heats it and serves. Perfect for today’s busy households. Another advantage using the Milkies Food Trays is you can eliminate unwanted sugar in baby’s food which is good for early dental hygiene. Check out Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube where you can learn all sorts of information from breastfeeding to teething information and maybe some baby food recipes.
While you are trying to encourage good dental hygiene in your youngster, it is always soothing for baby’s tender gums to use teethers that offer different textures, designs for easy grasping and colors. Marcus & Marcus’ Teethers are food-grade, very colorful and designed for baby-safe fun. Free of BPA, PVC and phthalate, top-rack dishwasher safe and great for the freezer.

HABA also has a Clutching Toy Magic Moons that has a variety of different textures that will assist the teeth to break through the gums easily. Made with safe silicone the teether flips around offering perfect grasping and teething for little hands. This teether is very colorful and a sure thing to occupy their time. My Granddaughter absolutely loves hers.

Thus, HABA also offers plush toys, games and textiles. Naturally, our toys comply and often exceed safety standards! HABA products may be found in well-stocked toy stores around the globe.”
I have talked about a few things that are great and beneficial for your childs early dental hygiene but there is one other item that is probably the best product of all. Do you use a sippy cup with the little spout on the lid? The First Years has used some creative thinking and developed a Disney Simply Spoutless Cup that enables your child to drink naturally from anywhere around the rim and not spill a drop on the floor, table or themselves.
This is just incredible and your child will feel so grown up that he or she does not have to have that funny lid on top of their drink when nobody else in the family has one. For ages 12 months and older, spill proof and made without any BPA, this cup is perfect for your little ones. The child simply sips from around the rim and when they are done drinking the lid seals tightly.
The First Years Disney Simply Spoutless Cup is available here and is available in Mickey and Minnie characters. Check out Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube. The First Years moto is “There are so many incredible milestones as a new parent. Our complete line of products can help you and your family reach each one safely and happily. Get ready”
As you can see there are a variety of products that are safe and perfect for getting a head start on baby’s good oral dental hygiene. This is probably one of the things you didn’t even think about when baby was born. But, before you know it, it will be time to start brushing and flossing their little pearly whites. If a habit is formed early, baby will have a good start on protecting those little choppers.
