The toothbrush sign looks like you are brushing your teeth with your finger. To sign toothbrush, extend your index finger and rub it back and forth in front of your teeth.
Making the sign for toothbrush before you brush prepares your baby for the activity and seems to reduce fussiness.
Start teaching this sign when your baby shows curiosity about your own oral routine. Get him or her a baby toothbrush and incorporate songs and signing as part of the brushing routine.

We’re still slowly getting into a daily routine with brushing my baby’s teeth

My 2 year old loves to brush but without toothpaste
That’s a good first step. Try experimenting with different kiddie toothpaste flavors. Hopefully, your toddler will latch on to a fave flavor soon. Good luck!

Very helpful guide
Iam having a hard time getting my two year old to brush her teeth? Any advice
Maybe you should try various flavored toothpastes based on her favorite fruit flavors. Also, reflect on the usual setting or situation before you try to get her to brush her teeth. If there is anything unpleasant in that routine for her, she will naturally associate something negative as well to brushing her teeth. Don’t be afraid to try new tactics for getting her to brush her teeth, and try to inject positive associations with these as much as possible. Good luck!
