I just wanted to pass on this tip I just discovered.

We have really been trying to get Odin used to tooth brushing but he just doesn't like it. Well, I decided to try brushing his teeth with Baby Food and it worked!! He loved it! It took a little longer as he just wanted to lick the brush constantly, but I was able to give all his teeth and gums a scrub while doing it!

We are slowly going to wean him off the baby food (I always have baby food on hand for Odin as it's easily digestible if he had a upset stomach or what not, and it is also nice to mix in with oatmeal or potato flower as a quick treat!) and substitute some baking soda paste. I hope he continues to be ok with this!
