Oh, I have long been looking for the Aquafresh Milk Teeth since I don't know when. But unfortunately, it's not available in any grocery or drug store here in our area. So, when we went to SM Hypermart last week after we attended the Media Family Day at The Mind Museum, and I saw this on the shelf, I quickly asked Allan if I could get one for Trev. Glad he said yes. Haha!

You see, I just recently bought Trev a Kodomo toothpaste and since I only use a smear each time I brush his teeth, it looks like the tube isn't even used yet, haha! And while I am content with it, I decided to just keep the tube for now and replace it with Aquafresh Milk Teeth Toothpaste instead.
Like what I mentioned when I blogged about the Kodomo toothpaste, I read from one of the groups/forums I belong to that Aquafresh Milk Teeth is the better toothpaste to use since it's so far the only toddler toothpaste which has 1000 ppm of fluoride, enough to keep your little one's teeth strong and healthy. Another thing written from the forum is that, it's okay to use fluoride toothpaste on little kids and not worry about its bad effects like fluorosis because it won't happen unless the child swallows an entire tube of fluoride toothpaste. Oopps, don't quote me on that please, but I trust it's a fact because it was stated by a pedia dentist. That's why I bravely dared to try fluoride toothpaste for my little boy. Well, had I known about it before, I should not have used non-fluoridated toothpaste on him at all.
The Aquafresh Milk Teeth toothpaste has a very mild minty taste, just right for little kids. Trev, as always, enjoys brushing his teeth with it. And compared to before, I am glad that he's almost perfected gargling and spitting when brushing, hurray! Well, almost, as there are still rare cases where accidents happen sometimes when he would suddenly swallow! But it doesn't happen always. So, I make sure I put just a smear. I am or his Tatay is still the one brushing his teeth all the time, and we would just give him his toothbrush after thoroughly cleaning his teeth so he could practice good grip and control and would learn how to brush his teeth properly.
|The little guy looks really serious, errr, should I say curious about what's written on the box. Haha!|
I am really very particular about my son's dental health. In fact, ever since his first tooth came out, I wanted to bring him to a pedia dentist already. Haha! I should have, but was not able to and I don't feel good about it, huhu. Real soon, we'll go and visit one.
How about you, moms? What's your child/ren's toothpaste? Have you tried the Aquafresh Milk Teeth toothpaste yet? :-)
