Toothpaste For Babies

Geoff is now 12 turning 13 months old. As expected, his first tooth broke out when he was around 5 or 6 months old. As of writing, he now has 4 teeth on the upper gum and 3 teeth below.

Honestly, I am not a tooth conscious person. I don’t mind if there is a need to take out a tooth because it causes me inconvenience, nor do I want to pay too much to get a pasta treatment to rid my teeth of cavities. Maybe, I got used to not having enough money to afford it. Maybe it was not a big deal for me during that time since I was still able to smile with no problems at all.

Looking back at all those tooth abuse days, I now regret how I mistreated my no longer pearly whites. I now envy the people whose teeth are whiter and cavity free. Not that I am sporting a mediocre set, and I really want it back to how it was.

So much for babbling. Now that Geoff is sporting his own set of pearly whites, I want to make sure that it will be well taken care of. I have been on search for affordable, yet, baby-friendly toothpaste in the market so that he can be used to brushing his teeth. I was initially planning on buying Sansfluo, as this was the only baby toothpaste that I was familiar with. I was hesitant to buy if before because I knew that it was a bit pricey, almost double the amount of a regular adult toothpaste.

Today, while Babe and I were in Toys R Us in Eastwood Mall,  found a new product. It is called Tiny Buds and they also have toothpaste for babies. What got me interested was the cute packaging (yes, I am serious!), then the flavor. I checked the pamphlet and it does not have Xylitol like Sansfluo. I am not sure what it is for anyway and I am hoping that this can somehow be clarified by the pedia when we have him checked up by Saturday.



We might also ask for a referral to a pedia dentist to have Geoff’s teeth checked. Either way, I would really appreciate it if someone will be able to share their experiences with both products.

      Hi Jaren. My apologies, sobrang tagal na pala nitong comment mo. Anyway, we tried both. my baby liked the taste of Tiny buds better, so when we finished Sansfluo, we went ahead and continued using Tinybuds instead.
