pI was trying to find a safe flouride toothpaste for my 4 year old and am waiting for a reply from Reach blues clues toothpaste. She was unsure what the "flavor" consisted of. Does anyone have any info on this or a Flouide wash? Would appreciate any help. Thanks , Kathy Ann/p

We use Colgate or Crest kids toothpate. We have used these since before we knew to check the labels. We have never had a problem with either. But I have never called the manufacturers.
My kids hate the mint toothpastes. They say that they burn.

My children will only use Oral-B "princess pink" toothpaste since this is the only "bubble gum" flavor that they like. The mint flavors are too minty and they refuse to use it so I have stocked up on the one they like since it is so hard to find!!

We suffer from migraines as well as PA, so it's Tom's of Maine for us. We even bring it to the dental hygenist. All the others contain sorbitol and cause her headaches.

My husband and I use Sensidyne, my oldest uses colgate, my son uses crest and my two youngest use colgate or oral B depending on the picture on the kids toothpaste!
You must think I am crazy but the reason for five different toothpastes is simple. We had a run of "strep" going around our house. Where else but toothbrushes and toothpaste will strep hang out the best! The guilty child had his tonsels removed but we are now in the habit of seperate toothpaste and the kids will not think of sharing their toothpaste!

We have used probably every flavor of Oral B and Colgate, except for the regular colgate, which I plan to try since my son who is not allergic does not like any kind so far. Neither of my kids like Tom's of Maine. We have tried strawberry, cinnamint, and one of the other mints, I cannot recall which...My husband and I use listerine toothpaste and mouthwash or aquafresh.

We use Toms of Maine. I did call and was told it is safe for my PA/TNA toddler. DH and I use Aquafresh but it contains sacharin and I don't like DS swallowing a lot of sacharin.

Has anyone here encountered a toothpaste that is *not* safe for peanut/tree nut allergic individuals?

We use Crest for Kids, but store Ryan's tube separately. The girls are getting older now and prefer my Sensodyne or Arm & Hammer Peroxide/Baking soda toothpaste. If they do use his tube, they have to wash their hands first and squirt the toothpaste on their finger, then put it on the brush. His paste never touches their toothbrushes (just in case they ate something offensive at school) and his toothbrush is stored separately from the others, even though our household is peanut free.

Have anyone been using orajel toddler training toothpaste? I called and was told it is free of peanut and tree nut. Just wondering if anyone has experience.
