    How old was your baby when you started using Toothpaste?

    My 6mth old has 2 teeth already, I'm brushing her teeth, but wondering when it's safe to use Toothpaste.

    Regular fluoride toothpaste?  I started letting them brush with it when I was pretty sure they wouldn't just swallow it - about age 3 years.

    At 6 months I'd just use water and the infant toothbrush you put on your finger to swab them with.  Dip the brush in the water and brush the teeth very gently.

    If you have a store that carries natural products nearby, try a toothpaste for toddlers, something that even if swallowed won't harm them. I don't remember the brand but there was some herb based toothpaste for little ones we used at the beginning. Later on, I think around the age of 3 or 4 we switched to a regual one.

    I started using toothpaste the minute i saw a tooth in my triplets mouth but deffinately fluoride free and natural, they swallow it, generally i followed with them drinking water, but want to make sure its the one thats safe to swallow.  Until they learn to spit correctly which is around 4, i brush their teeth with non- fluoride toothpaste now and the're 3.  They really can't do a good job yet but learning
