Q.

Toothpaste for baby

Hi Doc. The other day I bought Baby Aquafresh for babies between 0-3 years. My son is almost 9 months now. He doesn' t have any teeth yet. Should I only start with toothpaste when the teeth appears? I also want to know if they can swallow the toothpaste because I don' t think I' ll be able to get him to spit it out.
How many times a day should I brush his teeth if I do start with brushing?
