ARE YOU WEANING YOUR BABY THIS NEW YEAR?

KEEP BABY’S TOOTHBRUSH CLOSE-TO-HAND As Dental Experts Say Be Prepared To Brush Little Teeth And Wipe Gums MORE THAN TWICE A DAY

Are you weaning your baby this New Year - and perhaps letting them enjoy a little treat or two?  Bickiepegs, experts in oral health for over 90 years, is issuing advice to parents of infants who are of weaning age to ensure they wipe their gums and clean their teeth more than twice a day.  The holiday period is often the time when infants will try new tastes, from dried fruit, a teaspoon of ice cream or even a little piece of chocolate cake.  However, in line with the BSPD’s DCby1 recommendations experts advise that even when a baby has no teeth or just one or two, it is never too early to start a good oral care regime.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BRUSHING

However, many parents will struggle to find the right moment to encourage their baby to allow them to clean their teeth.  The bed-time brushing session is key – but you should also brush your baby’s gums and teeth on at least one other occasion during the day – if not more, especially if they are enjoying sweet treats. 

Melonie Prebble, Dental Therapist & Hygienist said “It doesn’t really matter when that second or third brushing happens – just as long as it does.  Babies’ milk teeth are key to the development of adult teeth.  It’s important to get your baby used to having their gums and teeth cleaned.  You don’t even have to be in the bathroom for the second brushing.  Try running your finger over their gums to wipe them and gently brush their first teeth at their high chair after they have finished eating.

Melonie adds “Babies should visit the dentist before their first birthday and start a daily oral care regime.  I recommend using a specialist baby toothbrush, such as Bickiepegs Finger Toothbrush & Gum Massager, so that they start a good regime as early as possible”.

HELP WITH TEETHING

Over the decades Bickiepegs have helped thousands of babies get through the teething phase with their Bickiepegs Natural Teething Biscuits.  Indeed, as little Prince Louis approaches 6 months of age and will be teething, Bickiepegs would recommend their sugar-free teething solution, that has helped many royal babies (including his relatives) over the last 90 years.  Bickiepegs have supplied their natural teething biscuits to royal babies in both the UK and Europe from as far back as the 1930s receiving thank you letters from the Royal households of Princess Margaret, Prince Charles and Princess Anne.

Chris Blincoe, Director at Bickiepegs Healthcare said “We are so proud that our heritage has been built over the last 90 years, and that our history includes offering support to royal babies through the tricky teething phase.  Our teething biscuits have been tried and tested by British babies for generations and it is lovely to know that we continue to help babies teethe naturally, often hearing of grandparents recommending our products!’

Dr Uchenna Okoye, Dentist and Clinical Director of London Smiling Dental Group (and a new mother herself) comments “Sometimes parents are surprised at how early teething can start.  In fact some babies are even born with their first teeth, whilst others start teething from about four to six months. The teething process can be uncomfortable with many babies experiencing flushed cheeks, dribbling, sore red gums and irritability.   Teething infants will become very focused on chewing anything they can find to help relieve these symptoms!  It’s important to find a teething aid that is satisfyingly hard and that can reach front and back teeth .”

Bickiepegs Natural Teething Biscuits, designed in 1925 by leading paediatrician Dr Harry Campbell provide both a hard surface on which to cut teeth and supply a baby with the vital exercise required for the development of their jaws, jaw muscles and gums.  Bickiepegs satisfy emerging teeth and help ease the pain associated with teething - naturally.   Find out more www.bickiepegs.com
