DD is 8 months old and has two teeth, should I start brushing her teeth? And if so, what do I use and what is the best way to do it? TIA!

I took a warm clean wash rag and cleaned my son's teeth until he was about a year old. Then we got a tooth brush and small thing of little smiles tooth paste that was safe to swallow.

You could use finger brushes... or a regular baby/toddler toothbrush.



They make "training toothpaste" It's flouride free so it's safe to swallow.

We bought a finger brush. It came with the toothpaste and everything. You can even use it on the gums. (:

I started using the finger brush on LOs gums now because he's teething and I want to get him used to me brushing his teeth. It's recommended that you brush after every bottle and/or food. Baby teeth decay easily.
