Our babies also need daily oral hygiene and care. Although most babies will be toothless until around six months, it is important to clean their gums daily and after feedings to wipe away any built-up germs/bacteria.
To care for your baby’s gums, all you will need is a clean/sterile washcloth or some gauze and a little bit of water. Once a day, wet a wash cloth or gauze with water, wrap it around your index finger, and gently wipe across the outside and inside of both the upper and lower gums. Once solid foods are introduced be sure to clean the gums after every meal.
