First tooth - cleaning?

My 5 month old has just got his first tooth and I'm wondering if I should start to clean it. I've got some toothpaste and a brush but should I use my finger to rub it on first? I've no idea where to start and would appreciate any advice you can offer, thanks xx


  • my hv advised to start with something like a clean flannel and rub over the tooth (my los was 3 months so quite early) and then went he went onto solids and had more teeth I then introduced a toothbrush, got him used to that, then introduced the paste
