DS had his 1st dental appt 2day. We found out he has one cavity that needs to be filled in his premolar and another that's starting to turn into a cavity on his top front tooth. Dentist asked, does he still take the bottle? I said, he never did, he nurses before he naps and sometimes after & thru-out the night. Dentist then went on 2 say that that's what is probably decaying his teeth! I quickly interjected and brought up Dr. Palmer's research and pretty much said it was BS. He went on 2 say that even BM has natural sugars that decay the teeth. I said, but babies only suck what they need. It doesn't sit in their mouth. He said, it didn't matter.
Let's just say, I wasn't convinced w/ his argument.
So to help me out for our next appt. I would like to ask the mom's who have
already gone to the dentist if:
1)u've been told the same?
2)if you do not give LO juice and brush their teeth twice a day, did LO still
