Teething & Babies
Step 1 –
Never wait till the full growth of the tooth of your toddler to start the cleaning habit. As the tooth start coming you should start to wipe his gums after every feed. Use wet and warm soft cloth for it. As well as you can use a rubber cleaning device too. It is easily available in the market. It will make a grip on your finger so you can clean your baby’s teethers very easily. And yes save your finger from getting bitten from your junior J.
Avoid giving sweets the baby just before bedtime spatially any drink which contains soda and sugar. I advise avoiding juice too because that’s also carrying sugar. If possible avoid milk bottle in baby’s mouth or any other thing while your toddler is getting sleep. It increases the risk of cavities. Many of baby’s having this habit to keep the bottle in the mouth during sleep. Be sure not to appreciate this habit.

I have seen many times that parents give the first introduction of the toothbrush so late to toddler. Be sure as your baby turns 12 months introduce toothbrush as a new habit in the child. As they rise in the morning they should start brush first, after that anything else. There are so many brands and models with extra soft bristles baby toothbrushes in the market. If you develop this hobbit in early age, your baby will use toothbrush regularly as they will turn24 months and that time they would be taking solid meal too on daily basis.
