How to care for ’s teeth

Before teeth appear, use a clean, damp washcloth or a soft infant toothbrush to clean baby’s gums every day. Once teeth appear, use an infant toothbrush which should be small and soft-bristled.

Use a smear of toothpaste about the size of a rice grain initially then switch to a pea-sized amount as the child approaches 2 to 3 years of age. I prefer a herbal toothpaste which is free of .

Dental checks should begin when the baby is about one year old.

19 month old intake

Nineteen month old children should be fed three daily meals plus two snacks. At this time, toddlers need about three 8-ounce cups of whole milk per day in order to supply calcium for their growing bones and teeth.

How to wean your 19 month old toddler

The nineteen month old toddler should be slowly weaned from the breast. One of the easiest ways to do so is to slowly reduce the number of nursing sessions. For example, the mother can drop one daily nursing session for at least three to seven days before dropping the next.

However, in order to prevent a feeling of rejection, mothers should not deprive the child if undue fussiness or even sorrow occurs due to lack of breastfeeding.

A slow weaning pace also protects the mother from developing congested milk ducts, pain and infection.

How 19 month old toddlers and its importance in development

Children at ths time begin to sort or put things into similar groups as they . For example, the child may separate toys or blocks into colors and may separate toys based on similarities. Sorting is important in development because it helps to strengthen the muscles in their hands and fingers.

Children also enjoy stacking things into piles and may do things like stacking rings over a stick or put things in order from largest to smallest or vice versa.

Sorting and stacking are important behaviors that indicate that the child is problem solving. These activities prepare the child to solve more sophisticated problems later in life. Therefore, parents and caregivers should play along and encourage the child in these activities.
