toddler toothbrushing learning babyteeth
Make it fun, sing songs and try to make tooth brushing a happy time.Give her a second tooth brush to hold and use the other to brush her teeth. This can distract enough to quickly get it done. Or try a rechargeable electric toothbrush. An electric toothbrush can usually do a better job than a manual one, when you have really limited time in there to brush it properly. There is a lot of choices, but it was the counting that made the difference for us. So, try all the techniques and more and never give up.

Queenoftheworld Mine is scared of electric toothbrushes… Not even sure why or how but she shrinks away every time someone uses it.
Hailey Ruiz I guess my lack of enthusiasm (read terror) of dentists visits spurred my sons on to race who will brush their teeth first every morning and evening!

Monica Coleman Thanks for the tip! I’ll try an additional brush to play with… maybe it will help or at least distract her enough that we manage.
