Cleaning Newborn's Mouth

How do you clean your Newborn's tongue and gums? My LO is two months old now, and I've tried using the tongue cleaner as well as finger gauze. Each time she'd crying bloody murder or throw up (even though I wait at least an hour after her feeding).

My DD is going 2 months. I use the Nuk oral wipe to clean her tongue. Sometime she fuss and couldn’t open her mouth. Is normal.

I used warm wet handkerchief to clean

I use a cotton pad, dipped in boiled warm water.. try to distract her with some cute facial expressions to encourage her to open her mouth before sticking your finger in to clean her tongue. Hope that helps!

You may use a wet cloth or NUK oral wipe. I will do it during my LO bathing time
