I've finally realized our kid's a mutant, and we're living a cheerful, never-aired episode of The X-Files. Not only does she sleep through the night--often after putting herself to sleep--she recently sprouted a couple of teeth with so little fuss, we were caught off guard.
So we started using filtered, flouridated water for her formula, and we saw and bought this little Fingertip Toothbrush from First Years. It's like one of those pageturning rubber thimbles with a fine, soft brush molded into it.
It's such a promising-looking design, I was surprised I'd never seen an adult version. Which means I just admitted I haven't been as faithful a reader of Daily Candy as I could have been. They see Dental Dots as a must-have accessory for the Walk of Shame. I think they'd be good for those early weeks after the kid's born, when brushing your own teeth counts as a major accomplishment.
Buy any of this stuff online and pay 10x more for shipping than the product itself. Just strap the kid to your chest and go to the drugstore.
