Yes you must start brushing with a finger brush or clean his mouth after meals with a soft wet cloth.

No paed doesn't recommend brushing with brush but surely you can use your finger with salted water just to clean his gums.

ruchita mehta can you please help?

Gums are enough for young ones to feed on semi- solid food types. Cannot use toothbrush, however, you can use your finger with a dab of glycerine to clean baby's mouth.

although proper brushing is not recommended.. you can use finger brush sometimes..

as mentioned and suggested.. u can get a finger brush and run the gums. they are easy to use
