Your baby's first teeth are a memorable milestone. Here's how to keep them clean

Looking after toothy pegs and teething milestones

It’s possible that your baby might be born with their first baby teeth already coming through but they’ll most likely go through teething between 3 to 12 months of age.

It’s important to take good care of your baby’s teeth as soon as they start to come through including cleaning them regularly just as you would your own.

Teething can be quite a painful process for your little one, but there’s a few different products and solutions you can use to help. These include using a teething ring or using teething gel to help soothe the gums and alleviate the pain.

As more teeth develop, you’ll want to start using a toothpaste specially formulated for a baby. There are a variety of different teething products on the market which will contain less fluoride than the toothpaste you’re using and will help keep your baby’s teeth clean and healthy.
