Hi mummy it’s best to use a cotton cloth, wet it with luke warm water and clean the baby tongue every morning don’t do it too many times in a day not good for the tongue.

If there's nothing else then use wet cloth. Never ever use cotton wool as some might get stuck inside the mouth.

Nope. Don’t use cotton wool. A damp cotton cloth or sterile gauze is better

No. Use cotton cloth. Safer. In case the wool gets stuck

A damp soft cloth is better
