Postnatal Care and Nutrition

Cleaning your new baby’s mouth should become a part of your daily routine. Use a soft toothbrush to brush the gums, cheeks, tongue, and teeth as they erupt.
The crowns of newly erupted teeth are only partially calcified (hardened). Clean teeth and a healthy mouth will aid in their final maturation.
REMEMBER: If your child is bottle-fed he should be off the bottle completely by around 12 months of age unless otherwise suggested by your pediatrician. Continuing with the bottle beyond this age can lead to a serious dental decay problem known as “milk bottle syndrome” or “nursing bottle caries.” Bedtime bottles or sippy cups with milk, juice or sugary drinks are especially damaging.
