  • I have one of those rubber things that go on your finger with the rubber brissles. I use it at bath time. Just wet it and stick your finer in the babys mouth and brush their tounge and gums. It works really well and my little girls loves it. It that little bumpy massagers on the other side for the roof of their mouth. They have them that have handles and ones you stick on your finger.
