Thanks to hello® a naturally friendly™ toothpaste for sponsoring this conversation.
Sometimes establishing good habits for my children feels really hard. I feel like I’m barely keeping everything afloat and fitting in a shower for myself feels like an accomplishment.
I’m not entirely sure why, but my children act like they are being punished when we say it is time to brush your teeth.
Then there is the–
I cannot reach my toothbrush. I cannot reach the toothpaste. I don’t like this flavor.
They get the lecture, but man, I could use a night without the struggle.
Did you know kids are obsessed with charts? I offer no reward and yet a chart kicks their butts right into gear.
As soon as Quinn came home and saw the teeth brushing printable outside the bathroom he asked what it was and wanted to brush his teeth right away.
Insert evil laugh here. Winning at parenting…finally.
While our kids are too young to brush their teeth completely independently, they are not too young to get started all on their own. Mommy and daddy can come through with the finishing touches.
I saw this little bathroom counter cotton ball cosmetic organizer and thought that without the lids, it would make the perfect little organizer for the kids.
Mommy and daddy keep their toothbrushes up in the medicine cabinet, because only a fool would store their toothbrushes with the kids ;).
We also let the kids pick out their own flavor of toothpaste, since they cannot seem to agree. We are huge fans of hello® naturally friendly™ toothpastes.
I’m not going to lie, I am feeling pretty proud that these few tweaks are helping to establish healthy habits for the kids and a whole lot less nagging for mom! If you are interested in choosing a naturally friendly™ toothpaste for your family, read more below!
We had a wild idea. What if we made oral care that was safe, effective, delicious, + beautiful? Introducing hello® is naturally friendly™ toothpastes. Clinically proven to strengthen enamel and protect against cavities, these awesomely delicious pastes polish teeth and freshen breath in flavors like supermint, mojito mint, pink grapefruit mint, and our newest — peach mango mint. Formulated without artificial sweeteners, dyes, or preservatives (not to mention things like triclosan or polyethylene microbeads – look ‘em up!), hello products are never tested on animals – in fact we’re leaping bunny certified – and made in the USA.
For those of you with little ones at home, hello is also introducing a kid’s line, featuring the same great formulas but in mint-free flavors kids will love, like Bubble Gum, Green Apple, and Blue Raspberry. Leaving out the mint means kids will brush longer, for healthy, sparkling smiles!
Did I mention that my favorite retailer in all of the world carries it? And yes, that is Target! While their kids line has helped establish some great habits with our kids, we are big fans of hello® for us too!
