dd is 7 months old and has two teeth. My dentist wants us to start brushing her teeth but im a little leery about this whole new world. What is a great way to keep her teeth clean and natural?
I should also mention that she is ebf but might be starting solids in the next few months.

My dentist just said to use water for now. Light brush or cloth. She has also already had her teeth cleaned at 11 months

At that age we just used water on a washcloth.

just use a wet washcloth or get a thing called "tenders" and use that.

my daughter didn't see a dentist until she was 12 months and the dentist that came and talked to all us wic users, gave me a tenders and i used that ocassionally. I didn't brush her teeth much at 7 months,but i try to brush them frequently,with just water and a toothbrush, now that she's a year and has 7 teeth.
