Most of the beginner parents don’t know when start to brush their baby’s teeth.

because they don’t have teeth yet. but it is not true.
Even though the parents can not see their first teeth, it is a essential thing to clean the remaining milk in the mouth due to the intake of milk.
It is recommended to use soft gauze with clean water and gently wipe baby’s tongue and gums.
2. After milk tooth
Around 5 months, teeth start to grow. (growing teeth is different for each baby)
Typically, they get a first teeth by the end of six to eight months. After that they are starting baby food.
From this point on, it’s time to start brushing baby’s teeth due to eating baby foods by using ‘Silicone finger toothbrush’ or ‘tooth brush for first tooth’.
Both are good for protecting their delicate gum.
If you feed at night for a long time, you’d better stop feeding after baby’s first teeth grows up.
What if they slept by biting milk bottle during night, it causes tooth decay.
