DS is almost 8 months & had 6 teeth. We got him a tooth brush bug I'm not sure when to start brushing them. He just shuts his mouth & wriggles off when I try.

The chewable toothbrush mentioned by TwelveLeggedWalk are great.
They are from brush baby, Sainsburys do them to! great with toothpaste and they get tops and bottoms at the same time, also with teething gel after its been in the fridge! Soft silicon bristles are great for cleaning/soothng teething gums.

Began as soon as first teeth appeared. Had a dinky brush to fit on finger. Also had one with a wide handle with thumb hole for easy baby grip so they could have a go themselves.

As soon as he had a tooth. You don't have to push it when they are little, some nights ds2 gets a good brush, others he isn't in the mood and I just let him chew his brush.
