Healthy gums make way for healthy teeth! Establishing a dental care routine will help your child be less sensitive to brushing and ​will set good dental habits as your baby grows. Clean your baby's gums after feedings, YES even before they have teeth.

To keep baby's gums healthy, gently wipe them with a clean, moist washcloth after feeding and be sure to schedule a dental appointment by their first tooth or first birthday! 

Once your baby's teeth start coming in, use a very small drop of toothpaste to brush, the size of a grain of rice.
