My son is 21 months and recently stopped letting me give him the flouride drops. I switched him to chewable and he seems to be doing okay chewing them but I worry that if he mostly swallows them, he won't be getting the full benefit. We don't have flouride in our water so he has to take the supplementsAnswer Question
I wouldn't give flouride to a child. It is very easy to give your child a fatal OD. Breastfeeding protects a childs teeth and kids get flouride other ways, that's why it's so easy to OD. Schools used to have programs giving kids flouride until enough kids died and they stopped doing it.
