Building Healthy Oral Care Habits from a Young Age

Although it may take several months for your newborn’s baby teeth to grow, it is important to care for their oral health from the moment they arrive in the world. Consistent oral care in the early months helps prevent or reduce tooth decay during the infant or child stage, and can set good dental habits for your little one to follow as they grow up.

From newborn to 6 months, parents can:

  • Clean your baby’s gums after feeding using a damp washcloth or Jack N’ Jill Natural Baby Gum & Tooth Wipes.
  • Gently massage gums in circles during cleaning to loosen up any food or liquid debris.
  • Ease teething symptoms such as increased saliva flow or gum irritation using cold washcloths or teethers.
  • Avoid putting your baby’s bottle, utensils, pacifiers, or other items into your own mouth (e.g. to check the temperature before feeding). This helps avoid dental decay transmission between you and your little one.

After 6 months, your baby can be introduced to a simple brushing routine. As this is the period when most kids will begin to get their first teeth, it is important to help your baby get used to the brushing process so they will feel comfortable and excited about it. Parents can:

  • Continue cleaning your baby’s gums after feeding. Finger brushes like the Jack N’ Jill Silicone Finger Toothbrushhelp to ensure a gentle and thorough clean without causing discomfort.
  • Ease teething symptoms and pain with cold washcloths or teethers.
  • Monitor your child’s diet for overly sugary snacks, and gradually wean them onto solid foods.
  • Regularly inspect your child’s gums, lips, or teeth for sudden changes (e.g. white or brown spots) and schedule a dental checkup immediately if appropriate

At 6 months and older, children’s toothpaste like the Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste 50g - Strawberry or Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste 50g - Bubblegum can be introduced into the brushing routine. Jack N’ Jill’s kid-friendly toothbrushes like the Jack N’ Jill Bio Toothbrush - Bunny are designed with rounded soft nylon bristles for a superior clean, and come in a rounded design to ensure comfort even for the littlest of hands.

Frequently Asked Questions About Jack N’ Jill Toothbrushes & Toothpaste

1. How often should I replace my Jack N’ Jill toothbrush?

Jack N’ Jill recommends replacing toothbrushes every 8 weeks and after an illness. This helps to protect your little one from plaque, bacteria, and other microorganisms that naturally accumulate between the toothbrush bristles over time.

On a weekly basis, Jack N’ Jill toothbrushes can be cleaned and sterilised using these simple care tips:

  • Rinse and shake off excess water
  • Place toothbrush head-down in a cup and pour in 3% hydrogen peroxide (enough to cover head and bristles)
  • Leave to sit for 10 minutes before rinsing bristles under tap
  • Shake off excess water and store toothbrush head-down

Jack N’ Jill toothbrushes cannot be sterilised in boiling water or microwave machines, and may not be safe or sterile if cleaned using these methods.

2. Is it safe if my child swallows Jack N’ Jill toothpaste?
What ingredients are present in Jack N’ Jill toothpaste?

All Jack N’ Jill toothpaste products are all natural, made with organic ingredients, and totally safe in case your little ones decide to swallow the sweet toothpaste rather than spit it out!

Ingredients that promote tooth and gum health such as 40% Xylitol and Calendula Oil are included to soothe children’s sensitive gums and teeth while fighting tooth decay. Jack N’ Jill toothpaste is also free from GMO, Palm Oil derivatives, SLS, and artificial preservatives.
