Bottom Mid

Your child is becoming more social and learning to feed themselves. They enjoy sharing in family meal times.
By now your child will likely have a few baby teeth. Cleaning and caring for their gums and teeth early on will help them to develop healthy dental habits for life.  Baby teeth can appear in any order, with all 20 baby teeth usually arriving by the time your child is three years old.
