Starting and Oral Hygiene Routine with Your Baby

I thought these tips were great, even learned a few things I didn't know about starting oral hygiene routine with my baby. How did you start doing this?

      I started when my baby was about three months old...I got a gum brush from walmart pharmacy...I read somewhere that baby gum health is super important and can prevent thrush if you clean after feedings ect...but i didn't use the paste until after solids were introduced i was afraid it would upset his tummy so I used water to rinse and brush his gums

        Now that my kids are getting older they feel they don't need to take care of their teeth even though they have seen first hand the bad teeth our family has, my mom, dad and brother and even cousins, I got lucky mine are no where near as bad. However, they still don't want to brush their teeth. I now have to give them the option that they can do it on their own or I will have to do it for them.
