Suffering some mum guilt here. My baby first starting getting teeth in August, now has three and it’s just occurred to me I need to be brushing his teeth. I feel terrible. Anyone experienced this? Have I caused any damage?

No point in feeling guilty, just make a commitment to do better from here on in. Hopefully there will be no issues, and it becomes increasingly important the more teeth there are, more sugar in diet, more crowded their mouth becomes etc. Is it ideal? No. But you know that, so no point in piling on the mum guilt. No point in guilt at all. Just in positive action moving forward.

I felt guity becuase I used a 'baby' toothpaste on my LOs teeth for 3 months before realising it only has a 3rd of the recomended levels of fluoride. Try not to let the guilt get to you, it is really hard being a mum and I suspect it is unlikely to have caused much damage as you realised fairly quickly.
