Teething is a big milestone for babies. Some babies start getting teeth around 3-4 months old, while others may not until they’re 6-12 months or even a bit later. It’s smart to start taking care of their teeth early to avoid future problems, build good habits, and help them get used to having their mouths cleaned.


Teething is a BIG milestone

Taking care of baby teeth is important, even though they’re temporary. Sugars in breastmilk, formula, and other foods can lead to cavities if not cleaned off teeth.

Tooth decay and cavities can be painful and cause problems with eating and weight gain.
