1 Bump

My son has 2 teeth popping out on the bottom, should gently clean his gums morning and night?

I read somewhere that you should just clean it in the morning and night to prevent cavity. How do you clean it?

  • I would take a baby wipe and clean the gums after every meal/bottle. When she got her first tooth, I got a fingertip toothbrush and used it.

  • Yes, as soon as they get teeth you should try to keep them clean. :D
