In brief: When Do Not Swallow

At whatever age your child can gargle and spit it out without swallowing it.
This is widely variable.

Mouthwash is not a substitute for good brushing to remove all bacterial colonies that cause decay. Teaching your child good oral care is important for their overall health so make brushing fun.
