    Toothpaste for 2 yo

    My LO is not a baby anymore, she is 2, but I was wondering what kind of toothpaste do you recommend for that age. We've only used water to brush her teeth and I know that's not enough. Any recommendations? Do you use those that can be ingested?

    We use Oral B Stages. Our dentist recommended that. Use a small pea size and encourage her to spit versus swallow. She will get the hang of it eventually. They come in bubble gum/fruit flavors.

    We use Doctor Burt's Children Orange Cream Toothpaste. It's 100% natural.

    We just asked our doctor about this today. She said to use the adult stuff because the kid stuff has flavorings/sugar to make it taste better. She said to use half a pea size but our LO is only one.

    Where is IMI? I like Wedela products but haven't seen them in HK other than Healing Plants and now I don't know where it's moved.
