This is the way I brush my teeth..

I am introducing toothpaste to Ethan. All this while, he has been brushing without it. But before I let him brush with toothpaste, I need to teach him to spit it out first. Let’s see how he fares…

    You can try the non-cloride toothpaste for him first. As for my gal, I let her use the normal cloride toothpaste since she knows how to spit it out. And she gaggle her mouth thrice, no more and no less. :p
