I switched Jonathan to a natural toothpaste that doesn't have floride in it. It's supposed to help with gum care and teeth cleaning. But I noticed that his teeth is turning a little more yellowish.

Ever since I switched to the new toothpaste, I noticed that even swallowing this toothpaste, it doesn't affect him much. But when i used Colgate {which he has been using for a long time} last night, this morning, he started being phlegmy.

I don't know if it's the floride that he swallowed or not. But then again, he woke up with a stuffy nose this morning.

I don't know. But thank God he's able to handle it and cough to clear his throat if it bothers him.

Looks like we will miss school again. I haven't been sleeping well either. Sometimes wake up feeling hot and then breathless. Then I end up sleeping in Jonathan's room {cos it's cooler there}, then having to lie down in a funny position so that I won't "crush" Jonathan. He also likes to cuddle up next to me then I have to move into a tight corner just to give him space...

I need wisdom Lord!

Hmmm - I wonder if the amount of flouride swallowed whilst brushing his teeth will be that harmful Serene?

I think if it's in large quantity. He brushes his teeth twice a day. So far, it's been good with the all-natural toothpaste. TFR!
