How To Brush Your Baby's Teeth

  • Once teeth come in, brush twice a day with a “smear” (or rice size) amount of fluoridated toothpaste for children under age 3.

  • Use a small, child-sized toothbrush.

  • Lay your child down on a comfortable surface, like a changing table. 

  • Position yourself behind baby’s head.

  • Give child a toy to hold.

  • Brush 2-3 teeth at a time.
