Yep! I have the little finger brush, and we use it a couple times a day. She loves it!

No, I haven't. I do wipe them with a wash cloth from time to time. He only has 4 so far. I need to get a tooth brush for him.

Yes! We use a soft brush. I brush his 4 little teeth, and I let him bite on the brush to sort of clean his gums.
He eats way too much food now to go without brushing his teeth.

No, why? Because I honestly didn't even thing about it and haven't even gone to get him his own tooth brush yet! I'm such a bad mommy. I don't even have FTM status to blame it on.

Yes, we were told to start wiping his gums when he was only 3 weeks old.
He has 8 teeth now and we have a finger brush and a little regular one. He likes to chew them.
