When we popped up to the Baby Show in Earls Court we had the pleasure of meeting the fab team at MAM. Having reviewed for them before it was extremely nice to put a face to a name. Whilst having a good old chat and introducing them to Spike we were offered the chance to review for them again. With Spike’s teeth popping through thick and fast we opted for the Learn to Brush set.
Like all MAM products, they drafted in some experts and designed their oral care range with the help of some top dentists. The Learn to Brush set comes with two brushes and a guard. The long handled toothbrush is the MAM Training Toothbrush which has a brush end and a teething end both of which are massaging for sore gums. The long handle means that both baby and parent can hold the toothbrush for the baby’s independence and to make sure the teeth are getting a good brush with parental control. The second toothbrush is the MAM First Brush for independent cleaning. It enables them to learn how to brush their own teeth by imitating adults or older siblings when they brush their teeth and it features the same massaging head as the Training Brush. The guard simply clips onto the toothbrush and means that the toothbrush can’t be put too far into the mouth and lead to gagging.
MAM always use bright, appealing colours for their products and the MAM Learn to Brush set comes in Blue, Pink and Green. The blue set caught Spike’s eye straight away and being 10 months old put the training brush straight to his mouth. The extended handle made it so much easier to brush his teeth because I wasn’t fighting him for control. I simply brushed away with his hand on the handle as well which he was perfectly happy to accept. With the guard on I was able to leave him to brush his teeth on his own. Beforehand he always shoved the toothbrush to the back of his throat so I had to battle him for the toothbrush or watch him like a hawk hovering to get the toothbrush off him. The guard is so easy to put on and remove but Spike is yet to work it out. The erganomic non slip handle makes it very easy for him to hold and control.
The Learn to Brush set has an RRP of £6.50 which is brilliant value for money considering that you get two brushes and the safety guard. It has made teeth brushing extremely easy and stress free which is the total opposite to how it was with Spud at this age.
