The same rules apply to children that apply to adults. Any area of the tooth that is not cleaned on a daily basis is prone to decay. As soon as a child's teeth start to grow, they need to be cleaned. There are lots of baby cleaners like little toothbrush puppets that you put on your finger. Babies are used to that. It is just another foreign object to them. You should clean around the teeth and floss as well. Unfortunately for babies, many times their teeth are not tightly tied together. They don't have all of their teeth yet. If there is space between the teeth, you don't need to floss. Floss is used to get to the areas that you can't reach by brushing.
