- What makes Soft Chomp different from other baby toothbrushes?
Soft Chomp is uniquely designed to make brushing painless for infants, toddlers, and their parents. The patent-pending toothbrush is made with two layers: a soft, cushy outer layer that's gentle on babies' and toddlers' tender gums, while a firm inner layer protects your finger from painful bites during brushing. This means you can more easily and effectively incorporate brush time into your child's bedtime routine.
- Is Soft Chomp BPA-free?
Yes, Soft Chomp is made of FDA-approved non-toxic materials.
- How do I clean the toothbrush? The book?
Clean your Soft Chomp using warm soapy water or a vinegar rinse. Do not boil, microwave, or put in the dishwasher. Wipe the book with a wet cloth to clean or sterilize with a vinegar rinse.
- When am I supposed to start brushing my baby's teeth?
The American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatrics suggest wiping or gently brushing baby's gums before teeth even arrive. Once that first adorable tooth emerges, it's time to start brushing!
- Why bother brushing baby teeth? Don't they just fall out anyway?
Tooth decay is the number one chronic childhood disease in the United States. Baby teeth do eventually fall out, when children are between 6 and 12 years old. Children with tooth decay in their "baby" teeth are three times more likely to develop tooth decay in their permanent teeth. Bottom line: it is important to keep “baby teeth” clean, healthy, and strong, and brushing is a great way to do just that.
- What ages is Soft Chomp made for?
Soft Chomp should be used for babies and toddlers from birth to 2 years old, or until your child is ready and willing to graduate to a "big kid" toothbrush.
- Am I supposed to use toothpaste?
Soft Chomp can be used with or without toothpaste. Consult your pediatrician or pediatric dentist to discuss the best time to start using toothpaste.
