My child finds our toothpaste "spicy" and refuses to use it. 

We recommend infant toothpaste found in your local pharmacy. Have your child pick out their favorite flavor. We also recommend using half a peas size amount on their toothbrush. Most younger children (1-3 yrs) end up swallowing toothpaste which may be harmful in large quantities. 

Make it a fun time and do it together!

Don't panic. Most babies out grow this habit. During the day, if your baby grinds his/her teeth try to redirect their attention.  At night time however, there is not much you can do. As your baby grows, if he/she is still grinding after all their teeth come in, have a dentist check them for signs of excessive wear.
