How to Care for Your Baby’s Teeth 

Every new mother, or even ‘old’ mothers, is plagued with questions on how to take care of their baby. Questions such as: “what kind of soap will be good for my baby’s skin? How do I take care of my baby’s hair? My child’s nails are so soft, what if I cut the nail bed with the nail?” Your worry is expected and normal. We’ve dealt with some of those questions and will still deal with many more. Keep visiting our blog so you don’t miss out.

  Some of those questions involve how to take care of babies’ teeth. How often should we wash their teeth? When should we start washing their teeth? What should we avoid giving them to eat? How do we wash the teeth? Let’s answer some of those questions. 

When to Start Washing 

The simple answer to this question would be ‘as soon as the first two set of teeth appears’. Most babies usually don’t grow the full set of teeth until about 2 years, although some do before they are 2 years of age. 

How to Wash 

In the first few months of their lives, they only have gums. You can start massaging their gums even from then. Massage gently with gauze dipped in warm salt-water solution. When the teeth start to appear, you may still have to hold on to the gauze and water. As they multiply, you start using toothpaste and soft brush with small head and a large handle. Start from grain-sized portion of toothpaste and increase as the teeth multiplies. Brush your baby’s teeth until he or she is old enough to do it on their own. Even when they do it themselves, you still need to supervise. Usually, they need supervision until they are about 6. 

How Often Should You Wash? 

Wash at least twice a day, especially if your child takes a lot of sweetened snacks. Wash after their first meal in the day and then before they sleep. 

Take Care of their Nutrition 

The best drink for a child is water. But, we know children reach out their hands for sweets and biscuits, and they don’t stop crying until they get what they want. Control the sweets your child takes. Sweets, or even sweetened foods such as milk, settle on teeth and cause baby tooth decay. If you do give them sweets, wash their teeth as soon as possible to remove the plaques that would have settled there. Your child’s teeth are safer when he/she eats and snacks healthy. 

Toothpastes for Children 

You must already know by now that your child cannot use the same products you use. The same applies to their toothpastes. Children’s teeth and gums are still very much tender, and the chemicals in adult toothpastes would be too strong for them. There are toothpastes made specifically for infants; they are soft on gum and powerful enough to clean the teeth. Check out our store children’s toothpastes; they are tested and trusted.
