Toddler H loves cleaning her teeth, now. I know many many friends have had tooth brushing struggles with their toddlers, and to be fair a lot of have had a lot more struggles and screams and holding their baby down than us. H is now 2 (27 months) and I must say perseverance has paid off. We’ve had so many stages of tooth brushing with H, from loving it to hating it and even to her wanting to clean her teeth 5 times a day. Yes, it’s been a journey. We’ve Googled the Internet on many an occasion, “toddler tooth brushing help” “toddler refuses tooth brushing” etc etc. I think like everything phase related, a change was needed to get out of the “don’t bring that tooth brush anywhere near me, refusal screaming stage” which had become the “brush five times a day and must do the ‘paste’ herself” stage. Luckily we have recently been sent a Brush-Baby BabySonic tooth brush for H to try and review. It’s definitely a novelty that seems to work!

We were sent a Brush-Baby BabySonic electric tooth brush along with some tooth paste. 


The actual tooth brush comes with two different tooth brush heads, one up to 18 months and the other 18 months to age 3. The tooth brush has a 2 minute indicator which is awesome as I have no concept of time with H! Some days the days really drag others they fly by. 

H was a bit freaked out by the vibrations on the tooth brush, but absolutely loves the light. She says “mummy button” for me to turn it on and then she very proudly cleans her teeth herself. We then do them for her too, but she’s got really good with direction: “front teeth again“, “back teeth at the top too“. She also loves to give a really cheesy grin when she’s finished, saying “all clean! all done!”

Brush-Baby BabySonic tooth brush review:

  •  Age 0-3 
  • Supplied with two brush heads one for 0-18 months, second from 18-36 months
  • Two minute light timer to teach the length of time teeth should be brushed (and remind mummy!!)
  • Pulses every 30 seconds to teach how to brush teeth
  • A vibrating brush head to help clean teeth


I like this toothbrush as it has a timer and has given H the extra incentive for cleaning her teeth. It also might provide that incentive that your toddler needs to clean their teeth using an electric brush like mummy and daddy’s, and of course the novelty of a light helps too! 

Feel free to share your tooth brushing tips… We can all use all the toddler tooth brushing help we can get!


Has your toddler tried an electric toothbrush? Do you have any tips for baby or toddler tooth brushing?

    I have to confess to find brushing 6 sets of little teeth a real chore, any help would have been great #BestandWorst
