You may be thinking that your baby does not have teeth yet so why should you worry about brushing at this point. If you are then that was exactly what I used to think until I learned just how much bacteria is in the gums even without teeth. If your little one is gnawing on food then you should be brushing their gums and onward once their teeth come in. FOREO has launched a new silicone toothbrush designed exclusively for tiny little gums and teeth. It’s called the Issa™ Mikro it is more than just a simple toothbrush and it’s now part of my 8 month old daughter’s bedtime routine.It is never too early to start good oral hygiene, the earlier the better then baby really understands what the brush is for from an early age. When I use the Issa Mikro with my daughter she is receives the benefits of nice clean bacteria free gums and because she is teething the gentle bristles feel so nice on her irritated and tender little gums. Once she has a tooth pop up I can continue to use the Issa Mikro to clean the whites of her teeth and protect her enamel. The best part is that my daughter absolutely loves the Issa Mikro Toothbush so much that when she see’s it she says, “ahhhhh” without ever being prompted (tell me that does not help create a love for brushing?).Why I love the Issa?

I am so incredibly impressed with the design on this toothbrush. Not only does it come in 5 great colors but the thought and technology that went into making this brush is really something else. My favorite part about the toothbrush outside of it’s overall design and pulse modes is that it has what is called Smile Helpers. The idea of the Smile Helper is that as your little guy is learning to brush he is rewarded with a “happy face” after two whole minutes of brushing that almost seems to appear like magic. If your child does not reach two minutes they get a “frowny face” and who like a frown? In addition to the Issa Mikro coming out this summer FOREO has the Issa for adults and the Issa Mini for kids.
