They just love to imitate us right?? Haaaa, imitate this! Gosok gigi, please.. :P huhuhu.. Yup, one way to teach them to take care of their teeth at early age, ajak brush teeth bersama2.. :)

Another reason to stop from using your bottle, baybehhh.. :)

Remember mummy's intention to make sure Aidan stops using his feeding bottle before he turns 2?? Yup, i am still on it, just that bila keluar, pegi mana2, especially rumah Opah or Tokma, mummy ofcoz sediakan bottle jer, sebab tak nak la Aidan tiba2 menangis plak nak bottle dia.. Buat chaos kat umah orang.. Lagipun, proper support is needed, sebab you have to be there with them.. Like, really be there.. But, kat rumah, Aidan tak menangis, just that dia main2 bila nak minum susu.. Dia akan minum and letak, pegi sambung main and datang balik, and on and on and on.. Alhamdulillah, sebab sebenarnyer, he can cope already.. Yup, no need to worry, sebab Aidan dah start makan, just that, kena make sure la he eats the right food.. Porridge, breads, biscuits yang memang mengenyangkan, and susu jangan lupa plak.. Bila siang, and the kids main2 minum gitu takper, if possible biar la habis, so tak membazir, (kalau dia main2, then baru masukkan yang balance tadi dalam feeding bottle untuk elak pembaziran.. :) but if malam, yup, give them their feeding bottle balik, sebab nak make sure diorang betul2 kenyang before bed time.. :) Before betul2 nak cope, once diorang tak perlu lagi feeding bottle, then boleh la you pat yourself at the back for a job well done! :)

Kenapa mummy nak Aidan stop using his feeding bottle? Haaaa, sebab ni.. Hehehe.. Baca Q and A ni kay??

I got it from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry..
Dental Care for Your Baby

Q. When should my child first see a dentist?

"First visit by first birthday" sums it up. Your child should visit a pediatric dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between 6 and 12 months of age. This visit will establish a dental home for your child. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child’s smile now and in the future.

Q. Why so early? What dental problems could a baby have?

The most important reason is to begin a thorough prevention program. Dental problems can begin early. A big concern is Early Childhood Caries (formerly known as baby bottle tooth decay or nursing caries). Once a child’s diet includes anything besides breast-milk, erupted teeth are at risk for decay. The earlier the dental visit, the better the chance of preventing dental problems. Children with healthy teeth chew food easily and smile with confidence. Start your child now on a lifetime of good dental habits.

Q. How can I prevent tooth decay from nursing or using a bottle?

At-will breast-feeding should be avoided after the first primary (baby) teeth begin to erupt and other sources of nutrition have been introduced. Children should not fall asleep with a bottle containing anything other than water. Drinking juice from a bottle should be avoided. Fruit juice should only be offered in a cup with meals or at snack time.

Q. When should bottle-feeding be stopped?

Children should be weaned from the bottle at 12-14 months of age.

Q. Should I worry about thumb and finger sucking?

Thumb sucking is perfectly normal for infants; many stop by age 2. Prolonged thumb sucking can create crooked teeth or bite problems. If the habit continues beyond age 3, a professional evaluation is recommended. Your pediatric dentist will be glad to suggest ways to address a prolonged thumb sucking habit.

Q. When should I start cleaning my baby’s teeth?

The sooner the better! Starting at birth, clean your child’s gums with a soft infant toothbrush or cloth and water. As soon as the teeth begin to appear, start brushing twice daily using fluoridated toothpaste and a soft, age-appropriate sized toothbrush. Use a "smear" of toothpaste to brush the teeth of a child less than 2 years of age. For the 2-5 year old, dispense a "pea-size" amount of toothpaste and perform or assist your child’s toothbrushing. Remember that young children do not have the ability to brush their teeth effectively.

Q. Any advice on teething?

From six months to age 3, your child may have tender gums when teeth erupt. Many children like a clean teething ring, cool spoon or cold wet washcloth. Some parents swear by a chilled ring; others simply rub the baby’s gums with a clean finger.

p/s :Kan.. kan.. Bukan apa, ini hanyalah langkah2 yang mummy ambil untuk elakkan sejarah berulang dua kali.. Hehehe.. Tak nak lah Aidan jadi cam mummy.. Masa kicik2 dulu, gigi tak cantik.. Semua kata, mummy nyer gigi 'rongok'.. Hahaha.. So, kena jaga from now kay baby.. :) Tapi kalau tiba2 jer gigi Aidan jadi cam mummy, haaa, kantoi lah ada org tuh makan sweets, choc and sweet drinks belakang mummy, without brushing back his teeth.. Hehehehe.. Yerrrr, kalau ada family mummy's side baca ni, diorang mesti teringat senyuman manis mummy masa kindergarten dulu.. Hahahaha.. Tapi tadi mummy lalu dekat kids shop, ada model budak2 tuh gigi 'rongok'.. Hahaha.. Maybe 'rongok' now dah jadi cam adorable plak! Hahahaha.. :P Yo lah tuh, mummy! Kekekeke.. :P
