Our MAM Oral Care Party

One of the most important things a parent has to do is care for a growing child's teeth.Not only is it important to prevent sores or infections,but also to preserve a healthy smile for their lifetime.Thanks to my wonderful sponsors at MAM and Childs Play PR,I was sent a variety of items to help my party guests do just that.

These super cute cleaning bunnies make washing babies gums a snap.They are soft and even double as a cute hand puppet in a pinch (think group of babies and one starts crying).I love that they come in pink and blue for girls and boys and would love to see them in more colors and even more animal styles.A yellow ducky or green frog would be great for unisex gifts!

The MAM toothbrushes were a huge hit.The dual sided ones for 3 month age have a soft side and a "bristly" side for cleaning teeth and gums.The older style for 6 month age have a normal brush style end as well.These are the perfect size for little hands.Even some of the babies were able to hold them alone,although obviously they cannot brush themselves.

We also played games like unscramble the words.This isn't the best photo but if you can see the word this time was toothbrush.We played a few different baby themed games and used some of the extra items as prizes for them.I also purchased some random items to go with the theme like kids toothpaste and floss picks too.

We discussed healthy feeding habits and the effects on babies teeth as well as some of the myths and facts associated with teeth and gums.I was provided some information from my sponsors and grabbed more online beforehand.

All in all the party was a hit.The parents were glad to have some new oral care items for their children and the babies were happy to have gotten to play together.I wasn't able to get more photos due to the loss of my old computer.Thankfully these were stored on a friends phone or I would have lost them all!

***All opinions on my blog are my own and may not be the same as anyone else..that's why they are mine.I received the mentioned sample items in order to write a fair and honest review from my fabulous sponsors at MAM and Childs Play PR .No other compensation was received and my opinions were not influenced by receiving sample items***

These are the cutest things I have ever seen for cleaning a baby's new little teeth. They certainly beat using a washcloth. I love the idea of using them as puppets while you clean their teeth. Great idea MAMM
