So as you can see,Amelia has finally got some teeth!First tooth came at 10 months,and 3 more followed over the next two weeks (my poor baby).
Now it’s time for brushing her teeth twice a day.I was worried she wouldn’t allow me to put the brush in her mouth,but she has been great,so far!
My husband gives her a nightly bath,while she is playing in the bath,he brushes them then,it’s a great distraction ,I do the morning!
It’s a good idea to start cleaning your baby’s teeth twice a day as soon as you see a tooth emerging. If you start early, your baby will get used to having his/her teeth cleaned, and hopefully you’ll avoid problems later on.
At first, you may find it easier to clean your baby’s teeth using a piece of clean gauze or muslin. Wrap it around your finger, put a tiny smear of toothpaste on it, and rub around your baby’s teeth.
If you’d rather use a brush, pick one with soft, round-ended bristles of differing lengths, and a small, angled head. This will allow you to reach all parts of your baby’s mouth easily and comfortably. Look at the packaging to see what age range the brush is designed for.
Happy Brushing x
