Q.

Cleaning teeth

Hi
I have bought a starter set of toothbrushes and toothpaste. How do I actually go about this. I have put the toothpaste on the brush and tried to brush my 10 month old' s teeth. He has 4 teeth - 2 top, 2 bottom. Is it ok for him to swallow this paste?
Thanks.

It will be alright if he swallows a little of the toothpaste but only put a small amount of toothpaste on the toothbrush.
