Cleaning tongue

Hi mummies, how do you clean your infant’s tongue? I use a gauze with warm water, but can only clean the tip of her tongue.. Any deeper, she’ll cry.. Tips?

I use a wash cloth with lukewarm/room temperature water! My daughter cried when I first try to clean her mouth, but after awhile she got used to it n would not struggle as much! Just keep trying, my Friend? Gently coax her by telling her step by step what you’re gonna do next?

I shall try again tomorrow! 💪🏽 Thankss


Use baby face towelette with warm water. No need to probe and clean too deep. As baby grows, you will Naturally be able to clean deeper

How young is your infant? I have the same prob too. She will cry and I can’t clean any deeper 😩

We clean the tongue during baby's bath time. We would put a clean cloth in and quickly wipe the tongue.
