  • Yes it is time. They make little tiny toothbrushes. They uses to make them small enough that you could fit them over your finger and then just some baby toothpaste.

  • I started cleaning gums from birth with a diaper wipe. From there, once her first tooth came thru, I used the finger tooth brushes with the infant tooth paste. Once she was old enough to spit it out, we moved to the junior toothpaste.

    You can find the finger toothbrushes in a kit with the paste in the infant section of most stores.

  • We started brushing from the day the first tooth poked its pointy little tip out with my son. We'll do the same with my daughter.
