Can my baby use adult toothpaste?

You should use a fluoride toothpaste containing at least 1000 ppm fluoride (check the tube). A family toothpaste containing 1350ppm and 1500ppm is also okay. Only use a smear of toothpaste and treat toothpaste like any other medicine by keeping it out of reach of children.

Babies should not lick or eat toothpaste even though they may want to.
