Brushing baby's teeth/gums

When should you start brushing your baby's gums and/or teeth?

Re: Brushing baby's teeth/gums

I was wondering this about the gums... I don't think you need to brush the gums because I do alot of reading and haven't seen anything on brushing gums - but I do know that as soon as they get a tooth you need to rub it clean and then I would rub the gums then too - but if anyone knows any different let me know!
