  • when a baby starts to get teeth and they drink from a bottle it can cause their teeth to rot! Both of my kids got teeth at 3 mos old and when they drank from the bottle it did a number on their teeth.The milk that sat on their teeth caused them to rot so, the sooner they start on a sippy the better.

  • anichols got it right....the sooner you can get'em on a sippy cup (or regular cup) the better for their teeth.

  • i always thought it was just at night time. not to give a bottle in the crib. my daughter is 19months and she just stopped the bottle and nothing is wrong with her teeth. i brush them everyday though so as soon the baby gets any start brushing.

  • Its decay from kids being put to bed with bottles of milk, juice or soda. The fluids sticks to the tv and cause decay.

  • I think it's referring to not give babies bottles at night......

  • The earlier you get them on the sippy cup the better, and if you do give baby a bottle at night make it water.
