    My LO has got 1 tooth that came through properly yesterday. It is still only little and not all the way up.

    I know this may seem a silly question but should i be cleaning it now, even though its not all the way up?

    I started cleaning Thea's teeth as soon as the first one was all the way through. Now she loves cleaning her teeth and does them herself at the front then opens her mouth wide for me to do the back ones lol.

    It certainly doesnt do any harm and will get her into good habits about cleaning them. :D
