I now have to nurse my child to sleep every night with a toothbrush.

    hmmm...did you just take him for his first trip to the dentist? I took my little guy to the dentist when he was 5 months to get his opinion about whether or not he had a residual tongue-tie. I was advised to clean his mouth after every nursing session. I just smiled and nodded and thought "yeah right--- 8 to 12 times a day and no nursing to sleep anymore? Not gonna happen."

    Now he's 9 months old and still mostly playing with solid food and nursing to sleep often. I make sure I clean his teeth/mouth about 2-3 times a day and don't worry about him nursing to sleep. We'll see if it comes back to haunt us when he's older, but so far his 6 teeth look fine....

  2. Oh my! No, toothbrushes were on sale so I thought we might as well get him used to it. Except after the bath he won't let go!
