When should my child begin using toothpaste and how much should be used?

A child should begin using toothpaste as soon as possible under the supervision of an adult. Children should spit and not swallow toothpaste. For infants, use a small cloth with water to clean around the gums and, if teeth are present, to apply a pea-sized amount of toothpaste on a soft-bristled toothbrush.
