chewing bristles is very common,same was with my son so initially i started by cleaning his gums with giycerine, it is very soothing,  try to do it thrice a day.

would like to suggest u to use ur own fingers for cleaning, brushes r not safe for 20 month old kid, their r variety of teeth soothers available,after say 4 months u can also opt for finger brush available with mothercare, they work well.
