if the child swallows a good amount of fluoride over time and has a potential of damaging the permanent teeth and turning them yellow.. make sure its fluoride free!!!! Gets them in the routine of putting paste on!  Hope this helps ♥

If you use toothpaste they sale some at Walmart in the baby section for infants and toddlers that is safe. Be careful using adult toothpaste because it contains fluoride.
