  • If your child eats sticky foods, brush afterward, after or at least rinse her/his mouth with water
  • A child’s first visit to the dentist should be made by the first birthday or six months after the first tooth erupts

Dental Health And Your Baby

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. How much do you know about dental health for babies and children?

Dr. Jordan Goldstein is the BornFree Pediatric Dentist. Here are some facts about teething from him that you may want to know.

Teething


* Usually starts between 6 to 12 months of age

* Girls usually start teething before boys

* The appearance of an infant’s first tooth is regarded by most parents as one of a series of significant developmental landmarks

* It is generally accepted that the eruption of deciduous teeth are accompanied by a number of symptoms including: general irritability, gum inflammation, drooling, loss of appetite, disturbed sleep, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, an increase in body temperature, increased biting, gum-rubbing, sucking, wakefulness and ear-rubbing.

Notes From Motherhood: Type Me

I’ve written before about how marketers pigeonhole moms into “Alpha Moms” or “Beta Moms” and how I feel like I’m neither. To me, being a mom is a very complex role and I don’t fit into any stereotypes.

I don’t think it’s just marketers trying to tell moms who to be. There is a lot pressure out there.

The BornFree Facebook Fan page and our recent Twitter party have allowed me to learn quite a bit (and fall totally in love with) our awesome fans.

BornFree Moms are homebirthers, hospital-birthers, exclusive breastfeeders, exclusive bottle feeders, sometimes bottle feeders, stay-at-home moms, working moms, student moms, mothers of six, trying to conceive their first, adoptive moms and more.

They’re all BornFree (or soon-to-be & want-to-be) Moms but have completely different lives.

Remember that you don’t have to fit into anyone’s idea of what a perfect mom is. Just be Type You!
