When should I start brushing my child’s teeth?
You can start caring for your baby’s gums from the very start. But with a moistened washcloth or a piece of gauze. Gently wipe your baby’s gums at least a couple times a day but especially after feedings and before bedtime to remove bacteria. When baby teeth first appear you can change to a toothbrush with a soft bristle, small head, and large handle.
