In 2005, the WRHA created a series of easy-to-read pamphlets on preventing tooth decay for children of different ages. They offer a number of good tips on how to care for children’s teeth, and they break their tips up by age category. Here are some of the tips they offer, with links to the pamphlets:
- For newborns, feeding time is holding time.
- Don’t put two-month-olds to bed with a bottle or sippy cup.
- From six months to one year, brush twice a day with water.
- For one-year-olds, there are a number of dentally appropriate, healthy snacks.
