Chicco is an Italian manufacturer of topnotch mom&baby care products ranging from hygiene essentials to baby gear with a quality beyond comparison. I had a great experience enjoying some of their products during and immediately after childbirth hence when it was time for a transition from the stage-1 finger brush, I, without a second thought, ordered Chicco’s toothbrush from amazon. Since the kid has been using it for over three months now, I have a fair knowledge of this product almost inside out and I’m going to share a review on the same.
- The head is considerately small and sturdy enough to easily direct inside the mouth.
- A protective cap that comes with the brush enables 100% hygiene when not in use.
- Its bristles do not splay despite the regular usage.
- Comes in an ergonomic shape. The toothbrush has an asymmetric, wide base that makes it easy for the toddlers to brush independently.
- The bristles appear ultra-fine and tapered as promised by the manufacturer in the best way a bristle can possibly be. But remember, this is not a silicone toothbrush, you cannot expect the softness of a silicone finger brush at any point.
- Soft rubbery handle gives a good grip to little hands. Not to mention the subtle cartoonish design that gives the toothbrush an ultimate Chicco touch.
- When you compare with the traditional baby toothbrushes available in stores, Chicco baby toothbrush is slightly on the expensive side.
Great things do come with a price, this one is certainly not an exception. If your little one is transitioning from finger brush, hands down, Chicco milk teeth toothbrush is a must-have in their oral hygiene kit.
A couple of tips to remember:
- The way we brush our child’s teeth matters as much as the quality of the toothbrush. Read Dr.Deepti Jain’s article on how to effectively brush the toddler’s teeth to learn more.
- The American Dental Association recommends switching to a new toothbrush once every three or four months—sooner if the bristles are frayed.
