It’s very important to teach our kids proper oral care at an early age. This is why as soon as Chuck had his first tooth, we already introduced him to an age-appropriate toothbrush and toothpaste. We also visit his Pedia dentist for a regular check-up and prophylaxis.
We noticed that here in the Philippines, it’s not that easy to shop for infant to toddler toothpaste because not all groceries and drug stores have them. So we really need to shop in bulk orders online.
It’s great that Colgate offers safe and effective toothpaste for the whole family so we can be sure that there is a toothpaste for every smilestone!
We have been using Colgate 0-2 for a week and Chuck loves it! It has no artificial flavors or any harmful ingredients. We just noticed that it’s fluoride-free which contradicts our Pedia Dentist’s advice that kids below 2 years old also need to use age-appropriate toothpaste with fluoride to protect their teeth.
Here’s the list of Colgate’s new products that are safe to use and effective:
- Baby Toothpaste: Fluoride-free, 0% artificial flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, and colors
- Kids Toothpaste: Age-appropriate fluoride, 0% artificial flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, and colors
- Baby Toothbrush: BPA-Free, 100% Food Grade Silicone, that acts as a teether!
We might be skipping Colgate after finishing the tub and just switch back once Chuck turns 3.
