How to Clean Baby Tongue?

Dotted Diamond


Begin cleaning your baby's tongue from the first few days after birth to help them develop good oral hygiene habits.

Start early

Gently wipe your baby's tongue with a soft, wet cloth or gauze pad. You can also use a special tongue cleaner designed for babies.

Use a soft, wet cloth

Do not use toothpaste or other cleaning agents to clean your baby's tongue, as they can be harsh and irritate the baby's mouth.

Avoid toothpaste

Use gentle pressure when cleaning your baby's tongue to avoid causing any discomfort or pain.

Be gentle 

Aim to clean your baby's tongue at least once a day, preferably after each feeding.

Clean regularly

Be sure to clean the sides of your baby's tongue, as this is where bacteria can accumulate.

Pay attention to the sides

Incorporate tongue cleaning into your daily routine, such as during bath time or before bedtime.

Make it part of your routine

Keep an eye out for any signs of infection, such as white patches on the tongue or sores in the mouth, and consult a healthcare provider if you have concerns.
