Infant Oral Care Tips!
Caring for your child’s oral health from 0-6 months lays the foundation for a healthy smile when they grow up. To help ensure your baby will have healthy teeth, here's some tooth-saving tips to follow:
  • Breastfeed if you can
  • Give breastfed babies vitamin D supplements
  • Brush baby’s teeth
  • No bottle in bed
  • Only water is safe in a bedtime bottle
  • Avoid propping baby’s bottle
  • Avoid letting baby walk around with a bottle or sippy cup
  • Wean baby off the bottle and sippy cup onto a regular cup by 12-14 months
  • No juice, pop or sweet drinks in bottle or sippy cup: use a regular cup
  • Limit unsweetened juice to 1/2 cup a day and dilute with water
  • Serve healthy food and drinks
  • Give water in between meals
  • Don’t dip baby’s soother in sweets
  • Use teething ring instead of biscuits
