No Teeth, No Problem. Good Dental Hygiene Starts Early!

Did you know that February is National Children’s Dental Health Month? I didn’t either, but do now! Oral healthcare is obviously very important in a child’s development and should really begin, way before your baby has teeth.

That is why when each of my kids was little and before their little teeth popped up, I would brush their gums with either a moist washcloth or teeth wipes. But there are also other ways to help keep your little one’s gums clean! Take a peek below at some products that will help your baby with their oral hygiene at an early age! Here is some of the best advice from dentists and products that can help!

1. “Give ‘em something safe to chew on!” Help to soothe your teething baby’s tender gums with Marcus & Marcus’ Teethers.
