It recently dawned on me that while I am ridding my home of chemicals, one of the most obvious things that we were still using (and ingesting!!) that needed to be changed was our toothpaste. So, I flipped over that back of Charlie's Superman toothpaste, and mixed in with all the ingredients that I couldn't find were some very, important, yet disturbing words..... If ingested, please call poison control (insert lightbulb going off). Why am I purchasing and allowing my toddler to use a product full of ingredients I can't pronounce and could possible make him sick if ingested was beyond me.
So off to the store I went to look for some better options. I found Tom's Of Maine Natural Toothpaste for Kids in Silly Strawberry Flavor for Charlie. It took some convincing, since Spiderman no longer adorned the tube, but we have made the switch. I also got him a new Recycline kids toothbrush which is made from recycled yogurt cups. He really likes it!
For Gracie, I found Earth's Best Toddler Toothpaste that comes with a finger brush, but I think I need to go buy her a Recycline toothbrush too, now that she has so many teeth! Ouch!
