Brushing baby's teeth?

My 10 month old has 6 teeth and I was wondering how often I should be brushing them? I brush them in the morning and at night before bed but I am wondering if I should be doing it more often?

  • That's just fine. You can also wipe them with a gauzy type of cloth - at that age that was easier for me than brushing. Sounds like he is on his way to good dental hygiene!

  • Ok good! I'm paranoid about teeth! lol..... i wasn't sure if I should do after every meal or not. But I was told that brushing right now is more to get them in the routine of it all anyway.

  • I would do the same as you brush 2 times a day, with non fluoride toothpaste.
