    Default Cleaning baby's new teeth

    DS is 9.5 months and has two teeth, with another two bulging in his gums ATM. At this point I admit I have never cleaned his teeth. He's BF and never has a bottle.

    Do you clean your bub's teeth at this stage? If so, what's a way to do it that doesn't involve a physical struggle, but that gets them used to it so they accept it has to happen? DS screeches when I try to lift his lip to look at his teeth so I can see teeth cleaning is going to be a battle!

    I bought a tooth brush teether from Coles. It has a tooth brush end and a bumpy handle to chew on. I give it to dd2 to play with and chew on all the time. She loves it. Occasionally I put a little teething gel on it and rub her gums with it. Apart from that its mostly giving her her tooth brush while we do ours.
