    Default When to start brushing baby teeth

    Ds is 7 months and has 4 teeth through.. Just wondering do i start brushing his teeth after meals now? His 4 teeth are so white and perfect and just dawned on me maybe i should be doing something to take care of them

    When did u start? And how just a baby toothbrush? I can see that would be difficult with a 7 mo though..

    We started as soon as DS had teeth, you can just brush with water.
    We didn't start using toothpaste until 18months

    Dont use fluoride toothpastse until he can effectively rinse and spit. Usually this isnt until at least 2. We still use a fluoride free toothpaste on our 2 year old daughter that is safe to swallow but get her to rinse and spit to practice but she still swallows a bit!

    We started at about 7 months when he had 2 teeth, we would give him his toothbrush when we were in the bath/shower and let him see us brush our teeth , he has a shower now every morning with DH and its the first thing he does when he gets in!
    just water until about 12 months then now fluoride free toothpaste
