Child with bleeding gums while brushing. Is there a mouth wash to prevent this?

my 15 month old hates brushing his teeth, he wriggles around so much that i dont get to brush his teeth properly. this has been going on for about 5 months and i was hoping he should be used to it by now, unfortunately i noticed about 4 days ago bleeding everytime i brush. what do i do to brush his teeth right, and what do i do about the gum bleed? are there any mouth wash for 15mth old?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I do not suggest mouth washes for a 15 month old.

They swallow them instead of spitting out.

Brushing has to be done by providing a example for them.

If the symptoms persist you should consult your dentist for the same.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
