When should you start brushing your babies teeth?
If your baby is still in the process of teething will brushing make them sore? My baby is teething at the min. but sometimes she's had smelly breath with it, does this mean I should begin brushing her teeth or is it too soon as they are still pretty tiny?
You should begin brushing their teeth and gums as soon as they have teeth or even before they come through. There are special rubber nubby things that go on your finger and shouldn't irritate the gums (it might even make them feel better). Make sure it is fluoride-free, because babies will swallow it and you shouldn't ingest that much fluoride.
as soon as a tooth appears I did but very gently,,, I gave my daughter the brush in her hand to get used to, altho brushing was last thing on her mind... it became a bit of fun :-)
