My daughter has recently acquired her first two teeth, and keen to ensure she is in good habits right from the start I started to look around research the best first tooth brushes for baby. I was amazed a the huge variety of styles and types available and eventually settled on these finger tooth brushes from Amazon for £3.23 for a pack of three. They come in pink, blue or white.
They are very soft both in term of the body that goes onto your finger and in terms of the bristle head. I can imagine that these would be very gentle on baby.
To use you simply put onto your finger,massage a very small amount of baby toothbrush into the bristles and gently use to clean baby's teeth and gums. I found these so easy to use- they really to make it a stress free experience, especially as teething baby's quite often like to chew on your fingers anyway! I found my daugther was much more accepting of these than a normal baby brush which I also tried.
I found that they fit well on my finger, and do not slip off or feel too tight - however if you find that they do not fit on your first finger you can simply try on another finger. My partner has also got on very well using these and he has much larger fingers than me.
One downside is you do not get anything such as a little case to tore them in, which is a real shame, and something I will look to buy separately- as you obviously can't stand them in a pot next to our toothbrushes and equally don't want to just lay them on the side.
I would recommend these to other Mum's they really are great. I had dreaded the anticipated tears and tantrums at teethbrushing time- but with these my daughter really does not mind. They would also be very useful for massaging sore gums, something we will try next time she is teething.
