ORAL HYGIENE : How to Clean a Baby's Gums

You can start cleaning and caring for your baby’s gums well before the first tooth appears. 

A couple of times a day, just wipe her gums gently using a clean, damp face washer or gauze. 


As soon as teeth arrive, you can clean them twice a day (in the morning and before bed). 

Wrap a clean, damp face washer or gauze around your finger and wipe the front and back of each of your baby’s teeth.
