Can I use a regular baby toothbrush?

My son just got his first 2 bottom teeth and I want to start brushing them. Can I use a regular infant toothbrush or do I have to use one of those finger ones? What about toddler toothpaste? He's 5 months.

  • i used the finger ones before he got teeth on his gums. after his teeth started to come in i used the regular baby toothbrush with orajel toothpaste, its fluoride free.

  • I would use the finger brush...but if you're not sure you can call a pediatric dentist or your child's doc.
