tips on brushing a baby's teeth please

Anyone have tips on brushing a baby's teeth?

Emma already has 8 teeth and our pediatrician said it might be a good idea to start "brushing" after meals.
But how do you manage that with a 9 and 1/2 month not-yet-toddler?

Emma, who sticks absolutely everything into her mouth without being asked, just thrusts her tongue stubbornly in between her lips blocking any access to her teeth.

And when I just handed her the toothbrush in the hope she would get used to it, she stuck the wrong end in her mouth!
