Teeth Brushing

When did you start brushing your baby’s teeth?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply:  I started to brush my baby’s gums very early, when they started to eat solid foods, with a finger toothbrush. I brushed them before they went to sleep.

As soon as my daughters had teeth that were touching, I started to floss them with floss picks. They’re easy to use because you can hold the pick with one hand and the baby with your other hand.
