lost her first tooth and the camp rock girls!

OK Seriously…when I say she lost her first tooth, I mean lost! She ate it with her Subway!!
I remember I was at a support group meeting when GiGi was an infant and they showed a video of an adult with some delays getting his teeth cleaned and he was strapped to the chair! Then they told how you needed to do whatever it took to clean their teeth. How about a tooth brush and regular dental visits?? I remember being freaked out and then talking to other parents who said that was a bit extreme. You think?
She had a cleaning and fluoride treatment and she is all good! She was a bit freaked by the bright light and laying straight back in the chair so they let her sit up a bit which made all the difference in the world. She is a bit of a control freak (no, I do not know where she gets that from) and I think laying there flat made her feel too vulnerable.

    It is important to brush your baby’s teeth. Sometimes it is not even important to use toothpaste. The most important thing is that you remove the milk from the surface of the teeth. You can use a toothbrush with or without toothpaste. You can even use cotton and water. Just as long as you can clean the teeth before the baby sleeps, that will be fine.
