When do you start brushing your babies teeth

As soon as your baby has teeth you should start brushing their teeth. Starting right away will help your baby get use to brushing and help to develop good habits.

Brushing a baby's teeth is simple. Just buy a baby toothbrush and use water. No need to use tooth paste until they are a toddler.

I always say it is my turn first, I brush and then it is the baby's turn and I let them brush.
