As a first time mom, I’ve experienced an awakening of sorts when it comes to the products I consume and purchase for my family, especially my 16-month-old-daughter. Prior to becoming a mother, I chose natural products and some organic foods when I could, but now I am trying to further educate myself and learn how to incorporate more of the good stuff into my family’s life. Speaking of the good stuff, I had the privilege to visit with Tom’s of Maine in New York City last month and learn about their line of natural toothpaste.
Tom’s of Maine Toddler Toothpaste was the star of the show and the product that peaked my interest the most. My daughter doesn’t quite understand the whole notion of brushing her 5 teeth, nor does she necessarily like when I try to help. She is happy (as a toddler should be) to take matters into her own hands when it comes to her dental hygiene..
I brush her teeth twice a day with Tom’s of Maine Toddler Toothpaste, and while the sessions aren’t always a success, I do manage to sneak some cleaning in when she lets me. The best part about using a product derived of natural ingredients is that I don’t need to think twice about what she’s putting in her mouth and possibly ingesting.
Tom’s of Maine Toddler Toothpaste is a natural, fluoride-free paste with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, which means the product is safe if swallowed. The toddler toothpaste is recommended for infants ages 3 to 24 months and has a mild fruity flavor (it is very mild, I tasted it!). What I love most about Tom’s of Maine is the company’s transparency about the ingredients, you can visit their website to find a breakdown for all their products.
The best part about finding a brand that offers natural and safe products for my entire family, I can finally stop looking for toothpaste!
PS: I was born and raised in Rhode Island, which means I’m an automatic fan of New England based companies, but you need to check out Tom’s philanthropic endeavors, WOW, I feel lazy!
Thank you to Tom’s of Maine for providing samples. As always, the opinions provided are my own.
