Your baby’s first tooth
will be here before you know it. But
even before the first tooth emerges you can help promote oral health by caring
for your baby’s gums. During the first
several months wipe down your baby’s gums with a wet washcloth after feedings.
When the first tooth
starts to emerge it may be painful for your little one. Soothe swollen gums with Punkin Butt Teething
Oil. Gently massage it onto baby’s gums
to help relieve your baby’s pain.
You can start to use a
gentle toothbrush even before your baby’s first tooth emerges. The Kushies Baby’s First Toothbrush is made out
of 100% silicone and can be place in the dishwasher and the freezer. For a teething baby place the Kushies Baby’s
First Toothbrush in the freezer before giving it to your baby. The cold sensations will help soothe your
baby’s gums while helping keep them free from bacteria.
The Green Sprouts My First
Toothbrush comes in a two piece set.
Both toothbrushes are made from
polypropylene and TPR and don’t have any PVCs or phthalates. These toothbrushes are suitable for use until
your baby is about 6 months of age. One
has a mouth guard so the toothbrush won’t mistakenly go in too far. The nubs and bristles will help keep your
baby’s gums and teeth clean.
Another option is the Green
Sprouts Baby Toothbrush that is made from polypropylene and coated with
silicone. This stage 2/3 toothbrush is
suitable for babies that are between 3-12 months of age. The mouth guard will prevent your baby from
sticking the toothbrush in too far while the soft bristles will help cleanse
your baby’s teeth.
