How often do you brush baby's teeth? Do you use toothpaste with fluoride?

We try to do it 2x a day but often it ends up just being before bed and then I feel bad. Her doc said to use a toothpaste with fluoride every other time which was news to me because I thought babies were to never have fluoride toothpaste. It's hard to brush her bottom teeth because she sticks her tongue out; I think she likes the taste of the toothpaste.

Before bed. I was told to aim for at least once a day so that's what we do. He HATES it though. Clamps his mouth shut and when I get it open he screams the whole time. We use baby tooth paste- no flouride.

This is embarrassing. Claire got her first tooth at 6 months. She's 9 months now and I've never brushed her teeth..... Guess I need to start!

we've tried before, and she just screams and screams. I try my best to at least wipe then off. Her pedi looked at her teeth and gums just the other day and he said they are really inflamed and shes getting a lot of teeth in really quickly... he said if i don't brush them for a little bit its not the end of the world. her mouth is so sensitive right now its just not worth upsetting her

I brush my LO's teeth once a day. He's had his 2 bottom teeth for a few months now.

Philibert has had 6 teeth for at least 3 months now. It is embarassing but we so far have never brushed his teeth. Guess that's what I'll do when I get back from work.
