Whenever I wash my baby's teeth, it brings out blood. He's 1 year and 2months old
At this age a number of reason could cause bleeding. There are a few reasons why bleeding can occur in a child's mouth at this age, it could simply be a new tooth growing (erupting) or it could be inflammation of the gum (this can happen if his teeth are not brushed daily) or it could be a herpes simplex virus infection among other things. My recommendation is take him to see a dentist or paediatric dentist so they can give you the exact diagnosis.

PLEASE I WANT TO KNOW WHAT COULD CAUSE BLEEDING GUM OF A CHILD WHO IS JUST GROWING TEETH?
There are a few reasons why bleeding can occur in a child's mouth at this age, it could simply be a new tooth growing (erupting) or it could be inflammation of the gum (this can happen if his teeth are not brushed daily) or it could be a herpes simplex virus infection among other things. My recommendation is take him to see a dentist or paediatric dentist so they can give you the exact diagnosis. On a final note to everyone who's reading this, if you noticed you or your child bleeding from any other part of your body, say your eyes for example without any prior injury, you wouldn't ignore it. Please do not ignore bleeding from yours or your child's mouth or gums, it is NOT NORMAL and can have serious consequences. Blood by design, is supposed to stay inside the body, when we see it outside for no apparent reason we should be concerned and find out why.

Babies start cutting their first set of teeth averagely around age 5 - 7 months. However some babies can be earlier and some are even born with teeth
and rounds up at age 3 with the first set of teeth(milk teeth) which are 20 in number. You only have to worry if your child has not attained this at 3 years.

One of my twins will be 2 in September but he has only 6 tooth.
By the time a child is 1 year old, most kids have between two and four teeth. Baby teeth eruption continues until about age 2 and half years at which point most children have their full set of 20 primary teeth. Although many babies have different developmental timelines.
