Q.

cleaning his teeth

hi Doc

my little boy is 10 months and has two teeth, I also notice that sometimes he has morning breath.

Should I be brushing his teeth yet and with toothpaste (which one) secondly how do I clean his tongue as it is sometimes white and i guess its from the milk feeds.

thanks

Yes, you can brush your baby's teeth with a baby toothpaste. Use a very small amount of the toothpaste on a baby's toothbrush. The amount of toothpaste should be, about the size of a grain of rice.Do this twice a day. Brush your baby's tongue at the same time if he will let you do this.Do this very gently.
