  • We have "safe if swallowed" paste, but I think at 10 months water is fine too.

  • Just water. I did not use tooth paste on my kids teeth until they were able to eat more solid foods. Even then I used just a small amount.

  • I used the little brushes that fit on your finger for my daughter when she was little with just water. We moved up to the paste that you could swallow and we just are still using that now with mouth wash too. She will be 4 at the end of December.
