Use a small towel with children's toothpaste(milk teeth) to clean him.

This is what I used for my boys but I think a wash cloth might be just as good like someone suggested

When my children were that age,I used cotton wool soaked in warm salt water to clean their teeth and gums and it worked. Later on, at about one and half years, they started using soft childrens brushes with a pea sized amount of childrens toothpaste.

I use milk-teeth toothpaste with a wool for my 1 year old baby.
This was as soon as she started teething. The paste is from 0 - 6years.
Really nice cool

@IIade thanks for bringing  up this topic.

I wash my 1yr 3mths baby's teeth with a clean mouth towel in warm salted water but she cries each time.
infact that's the last thing she can take and I am wondering why she hates it alot.

Again at 1yr 3months she has only 4 teeth, 2 up 2down. people said it's normal that it happen in some babies but am apprehensive about it.

am worried kind of

My wife and myself had same challenge with our son, though he is almost 3 now but the situation still persists.
Sometimes you have to be hard so that they wont have mouth odour in the future.
Take care

My daughter is one yr old and has just two teeth.Up and none down.
She didnt start teething until she was 10 months.I asked her doc and he said there is nothing wrong as it takes some babies upt 15 months.
My auntie's daughter didnt start teething till she was 12 months but now she has a full set of teeth now,so relax.

BTW:is it ok to clean the babys teeth just once a day or do i need to clean at least twice a day as required for adults

it does n`t make any sense to brush the teeth of a baby cos it will still fall off.
Re: How To Brush My One Year Old Son's Teeth by PurestBoy(m): 2:46pm On May 13, 2010
Chewing stick will do just fine.
Re: How To Brush My One Year Old Son's Teeth by Ajike: 2:56pm On May 13, 2010
My son is a one and half year. he will prefer to collect the brush from you and lick all d past on it. But whe i use cotton wool and warm salty water is always a thug of war btw me and him. so when i have his time i go for salty water but when i dont just give him d brush to pls himself.
Re: How To Brush My One Year Old Son's Teeth by Tbantwana(f): 4:15pm On May 13, 2010
Very useful thread! You can also use toothwipes , don't know if they have them in the shops where you live. They are from Bennets & they come in a great apple flavor cheesy I also use a milk teeth brush (aquafresh & colgate supplies them) & kiddies toothpaste wink

Re: How To Brush My One Year Old Son's Teeth by denony(m): 6:20pm On May 13, 2010

Even before the arrival of the first few teeth, it is important to clean their gums with a cottonwool or soft cloth everyday. Brushing your baby teeth will make him/her healthy and he/she will be able to eat perfectly.
