Answer by Wiss
Easiest way is to give them water. Another way you could do it is using a finger brush, you can purchase them at walmart. Its a baby ‘toothbrush’ just a tiny little thing you put on your finger to wipe their mouth with.

Answer by red
You can get this tiny baby toothbrush with baby toothpaste like what I use for my son – it’s a really soft toothbrush and “tooth and gum cleanser” that is flavored like some kind of fruit, I used that to brush my son’s gums/teeth/tongue lots. Just be careful if she has a strong gag reflex. Gerber makes the gum/tooth cleanser -toothbrush kit I am speaking about.

how do you clean milk off infants tongue?


——————————————

Answer by JustAmy
Why would you need to? If they is a white substance stuck to your baby’s tongue after a feeding it could be thrush. Take the baby to the dr. If it is thrush gentian violet works wonders to do away with it.

Is it necessary to clean baby tongue from milk residue?

I’ve been cleaning my baby’s gum and tongue on daily basis.
I’m finding cleaning her tongue area is a bit on challenge, I can only clean the front half of the tongue, not the back one, she will gag, sometimes spit up a bit.
My mother told me that I should keep the tongue really clean.
My daughter is 6 month, but seriously, is it really necessary?
Thank you!

Answer by Blue
no, completely unnecessary.

How to clean a newborn’s tongue?

I’m the mom of a 1 month old baby boy. I have not been able to clean my son’s tongue properly, so now it’s white and hard to clean because of his formula. I have tried using the newborn toothbrush, but it’s too huge for his mouth. I have also tried using a damp washcloth, but my son moves around too much when I try to rub his tongue. I have also tried using the applicator that comes w/Orajel, but it’s also too big. Do any of you mother’s have any tips? I would appreciate any help. Thanks!!
