Drooling, chewing, biting, chomping, not sleeping and just plain grumpy… if this last week is anything to go by it won’t be long until Harriet’s first tooth will make its appearance. We know looking after those little toothy pegs is very important but it can also be a bit tricky, all parents want to do what is best for our children’s health but how do you know what is best?
Eco-mama and Avidiva owner Caroline understands these worries perfectly and has found the answer for you in the shape of Jack n’ Jill. Developed and made right here in Australia this all-natural toothpaste takes the worry out of dental care and keeps those chompers healthy and clean from day 1.
Jack n’ Jill toothpaste (RRP $6.50, 50g) is a fantastic natural formula that is free from fluoride, sugar, colour, SLS, preservatives, gluten and other yucky chemicals that are often hiding in children’s toothpastes. This means it is 100% safe for your precious bundle, even if accidentally swallowed (something that is hard to avoid while little ones get the hang of tooth brushing).
Jack n’ Jill toothpaste is rich is xylitol to fight tooth decay and organic calendula to soothe gums and comes in a range of yummy organic flavours that kids will love. We have been using Jack n’ Jill toothpaste for several years and blueberry is the hot favourite in our home, there are never any complaints about tooth brushing here!
Not only is Jack n’ Jill gentle on little teeth and gums, it is gentle on the environment too. Take the gorgeous Jack n’ Jill Bio Brush (RRP $5.50), it has soft, rounded nylon bristles for thorough cleaning and an ergonomic handle made from 100% corn starch. Once used you can break off the toothbrush head and place the handle into your compost where it will break down in just 90 days (on average) as opposed to clogging up landfill, now that’s eco!
In the early days you may find a toothbrush a bit tricky to get in there, as tiny as they are, locked jaws are a challenge to pry open! We have had great succes with the Jack n’ Jill Tooth & Gum Brush (RRP $6.95) with baby no.4 so we’ll definitely try the same with little Hattie. The soft medical/food grade silicone doesn’t feel as invasive as a normal tooth brush (it feels more like a teething toy) and by gently rubbing it over the teeth it easily cleans all around, job done without tears.
Gift idea: With Easter just around the corner why not replace the basket of chocolate eggs by the awesome Jack n’ Jill Bunny Gift Kit (RRP $35.95), much healthier and no sugar-hit! This 5-piece gift set is filled with all your Jack n’ Jill favourites including a cute sleep-over bag and the bunny theme is a perfect fit for the occasion.
