Milk residue can build up on your baby’s gums and tongue, leaving them vulnerable to bacteria.
By regularly cleaning them after every feed, you’re getting your child used to good oral hygiene
for when they’re old enough to brush on their own.
If your baby still has white residue on their tongue and other parts of their inner mouth after
cleaning, contact your pediatrician to discuss the possibility of thrush (a fungal infection
common in babies). Learn more at mouthhealthy.org
