  • I wiped their little teeth with a damp wash cloth when they were very small, then when they were bigger I brushed them with a baby toothbrush and a very tiny amount of toothpaste.

  • Yes, once my baby had two teeth we brushed them twice-a-day when we brushed ours so we never forgot. It really helps strenghten his teeth. We just bought Seasame street floride past from TOYS R' US for like $5 or $6
