Toothbrushing - Infant

Posted by Lakewood Childcare Center on February 11, 2020 at 5:05 PM

It's dental health week so it has been all about their teeth! We have given several of the younger ones frozen washcloths to chew on and they have loved it - they smile up at us through their chewing as if this is the best toy they have ever had (I'm sure it feels wonderful on their gums!) We are continuing to work on having the toothbrush in their mouths after meals with some gentle reminders (though they love to run their fingers over the bristles too). The xylophones were brought out and they had so much fun using the stick to make sounds, they were very interested in the concept of the whole thing. To reinforce their fine motor skills, we gave them lacing toys which if they couldn't get the animals onto the string, some of them were able to stack them on top of one another which was also a lot of fun for them once it was discovered. The mirror has been a source of entertainment for some of the younger babies to look in and see their reflection in and then smile at themselves. Tomorrow, we will try pom poms in and out of muffin tins and as always, developmental skills will be worked on by everyone!
