Brushing kids’ teeth can be such a core at times, especially when they are in their toddler to preschool years. Don’t you agree? Z loves “brushing” but he doesn’t really brush his teeth. He’s more than likely to just chew on his toothbrush and eat all the toothpaste. LOL! I have been replacing his toothbrush on a monthly basis because he makes it his chew toy.
It’s been quite difficult letting Z getting accustomed to brushing as I think his gums are overly sensitive. Kids with Down syndrome are usually known to have some sensory issues and it makes it difficult to get them to finish the task of brushing his teeth.
So, how do I make brushing more fun for him?
