You may remember back in November when the Cape Cod Moms Blog featured a giveaway on the Baby Banana Brush that a lovely local mom named Laura won. Well now the banana is back (courtesy of the Baby Banana Brush company who sent us one to facilitate an honest review) and this little man wants to share his thoughts on his new brush with all his little friends!
When my little guy started to get multiple teeth, I was nervous about how I could convince a one year old to brush them every day like the doctor instructed me. I can barely get him to sit still some days, let alone stick something in his mouth and diligently clean his tiny teeth. One day, while shopping on Amazon, I received a recommendation telling me “your baby might like…” It was the baby banana toothbrush. I saw the great reviews and thought, “well what do I have to lose at that price?”
From the moment I showed him how to put the banana toothbrush in his mouth, he was hooked. The bright yellow color made it instantly recognizable and almost like a toy at first. The two handles are perfect for his little hands to hold and swish it around his mouth, like a pro. Now we brush our teeth together every day, another way he can be just like mommy. I would definitely recommend this toothbrush to other toddler moms who are looking for a fun way to introduce good hygiene habits to their little ones!
