February is National Children's Dental Health Month. I am partnering with MAM a company found in Vienna, Austria in 1976 that offers real solutions for parents with smart and simple products. MAM's mission is to combine the best in technological innovation, medically sound function and contemporary design to provide innovative baby care products essential for a child's early years. MAM products are used by families in over 60 countries on five continents.
MAM's innovative dental care collection that is BPA-Free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-compliant helps maintain baby's dental health from birth and beyond, as it is developed in conjunction with health practitioners and developmental psychologists.
Proper dental care for babies should begin before the first tooth appears, and it is suggested that parents gently wipe the inside of the baby's mouth and gums with a clean, soft cloth regularly to remove germs and leftover milk.
Babies can start using a brush, as soon as teeth appear. We should start to brush twice a day with an age-appropriate toothbrush to gently remove plaque and bacteria. Look for brushes designed for babies that have rounded heads and super-soft bristles similar to the MAM Massaging Brush for children over 3 months. This introduction toothbrush, features different surfaces to gently massage the gums while easing teething pain. Its extra-long handle is made for the parent and baby to hold together for guided brushing.
When the children are over 6 months, they can use the extra long handle MAM Training Brush that features a round head that adapts to the baby's mouth. Soft bristles clean first teeth and gently remove plaque and bacteria from gums.
Little ones over 6 months can also brush their teeth just like their parents with the MAM First Brush, which has a short, compact handle ideal for baby's tiny hands. Its round head adapts to the baby's mouth and the soft, rounded bristles clean teeth while removing plaque and bacteria. In addition, the brush's head features helpful indicator bristles in red to help parents determine the correct amount of toothpaste.
The MAM Learn to Brush Set for children over 6 months includes 2 brushes: one with a long handle for baby and parent to brush together and one with a short and compact handle for children that have learned independent brushing. Red bristles indicate the proper amount of toothpaste to use. The brushes feature soft, rounded bristles which clean first teeth and remove plaque and bacteria.
Health care professionals and paediatrics dentists recommend a smear of fluoride toothpaste for children under two that are at risk of tooth decay. When children reach the age of two, parents can use a pea-size amount of children's toothpaste and a toothbrush that allows mom and baby to hold the handle together for guided brushing.
Since establishing a dental care routine early helps set the stage for a lifetime of good dental hygiene, I would like to host a giveaway for one person in Canada or USA to win a MAM gift package value of $25 before March 19th. Please leave comments and follow my social media links to be eligible to win.
