This stage of the baby has entered the period of the teeth, from the baby began to eruption of the first pair of deciduous teeth began, mother and father will pay special attention to baby deciduous care. Deciduous teeth is good or bad, the baby's chewing ability, pronunciation ability, the permanent replacement of the permanent teeth and the body's growth and development have a very important role. The main oral disease in infants and young children is dental caries, which is commonly referred to as tooth decay, and tooth decay is mainly caused by plaque. Experts believe that the removal of plaque should start from the first deciduous teeth eruption. And this early cleaning work, completely need to rely on parents to complete.
The correct way to clean up is: mother sitting on the sofa or bed, let the baby lying in the arms. Mother with one hand to fix the child's head and lips, the other hand with infants and young children dedicated finger toothbrush, dipped in warm water for the baby to clean the outer side of the teeth and medial side. To 3 years old baby brush your teeth, do not use fluoride toothpaste, if the baby swallowed the toothpaste, long-term this will cause harm to the body.

Then in addition to continue to ensure that the baby every day in the milk around 600ML, the baby's taste of food also has their own hobbies. Continue to supplement the food while trying to slowly increase the chopper, eggs, porridge, noodles, fish, minced meat and so on. The nature of complementary food should also be soft, semi-solid as well. A few babies do not like porridge at this time, and adults interested in eating rice, you can also try to let the baby eat some soft rotten rice, but pay attention to observe whether there is indigestion and so on.
