You Will Need
- A baby with a toothless grin
- A washcloth
- And some cool water
Soak the washcloth in cool water and wring it out until it's just damp.
Wrap around finger
Wrap the damp cloth around your finger.
Gently run the cloth over the surface of your baby's gums. Make sure to swipe both the upper and lower surfaces.
Repeat this process a couple times a day, preferably after feedings. Getting your baby used to the sensation can make brushing her teeth easier down the road for both of you.
