Do you know oral health care for your child is extremely important? Children should brush their teeth at least twice a day. It is also important to make sure you change your child’s toothbrush at least every 3 months, unless you notice the bristles are starting to show wear, and then you would want to replace it sooner.
Do you know why it is important to change your toothbrush every 3 months? Because, like everything else, toothbrushes simply wear out and become less effective, and the worn bristles make great breeding grounds for germs, bacteria, and fungus.
Colgate Kids offers some fun products to keep children excited about brushing their teeth. I know with Gillian, she likes having her own toothpaste, and a fun toothbrush. Colgate just came out with a new product line for the kids, one of Gillian’s favorites the Littlest Pet Shop line.

What I Thought:
I am excited that Colgate has finally came out with the Littlest Pet Shop Line, as you can tell Gillian is huge into Littlest Pet Shops. With being the main shopper in the home, I have always purchased Colgate products for our oral health needs. I love the range of products Colgate offers one of my favorite for the adults is the mouth wash. I will continue to purchase Colgate products for my family.
Colgate products would make a great stocking stuffer, with having to change toothbrushes once every 3 months you cannot go wrong by purchasing the Colgate line for your child’s stockings.
