Cleaning Baby's New Teeth

It's important to begin cleaning our baby's teeth as soon as they come into the mouth.  When Audrey got her first teeth, I found these Spiffies Baby Tooth Wipes to be very handy.  I incorporated them into our bedtime routine.  After she finished her bottle, I would wipe her teeth with these while reading to her.  She really likes them! 

Wiping the teeth with the spiffies helps remove plaque and they're flavored with Xylitol, a naturally occurring sweetener that helps fight the bacteria that causes tooth decay.  Now that she is getting older (she's 14 months now) I'm using a small soft brush, but in a pinch, I'll still use these occasionally.
