Thank you Orajel™ Kids for sponsoring today’s post. All opinions are my own.
Leighton just turned 1 last week, and on top of growing like a weed, she also has a bunch of new teeth coming in right now. Yes, all at the same time! She got her bottom 2 teeth at 5 months old, and she has 5 more coming in at the same time now. Going from 2 teeth to 7 teeth practically overnight changes things. She has been a little clingier, a little fussier and a little more restless at night sometimes. We recently starting using Baby Orajel
™ Naturals Nighttime teething gel to help her with the pain. It has chamomile and passion flower to help soothe gums, calm baby and relieve the pain and discomfort of teething. With all these new teeth, it has also had us thinking about dental care, something we previously hadn’t really had to worry about yet. Taking good care of our teeth has always been important to me and Shane, and we want Leighton to feel the same way as she gets older.
We have started using a few of the Orajel™ Kids
products over the last month such as the Thomas & Friends™ Fluoride-Free Training Toothpaste and the Elmo Tooth & Gum Finger Brush. The training toothpaste is sugar free, fluoride free and has no artificial flavors so I actually feel good about letting her use it soon when she gets just a little older. We have already started using the finger brush on her teeth and gums ourselves, and Leighton seems to think it is a fun game. Not to mention, it feels good on her gums and she actually likes us to use the finger brush on her. Whether your little one is teething or learning to brush their teeth on their own, Orajel
