  • well did the dentist say that they are just stains and felt hard? if they are just stains then they will lighten over time. you can brush with a paste of baking soda and water, but they really really hate that lol. just make sure it's not bottle rot.

  • i have tried to take him to the dentist but he freaked out so they told me to come back when he is a little older... (he has breathe holding spells)

  • well with my kids persistance was the key lol. they go to a pediatric dentist and they will look at the teeth even if the kid is not too happy about it. it's better to get it checked early on. maybe a different dentist that is specifically for kids and then read books and play dentist with them (take turns counting teeth with one of those dental pick things and brushing teeth) that's basically all they do for the real small ones. gl

  • i just google bottle rot and no it is not that. they are just little stains on his front two teeth. nothing major, but still i dont like that he has stains on his teeth you know. and i really did not think that him drinking water from his bottle would do that...i guess first time moms learn by mistake haha.

  • some kinds of antibiotics can stain the teeth. google that. also, if they hurt the teeth, injured them by falling, the teeth could be dead. not a big deal since they are not permanent teeth. good luck with that breath-holding, that's a whole lot of fun!

  • yeah. i asked a question about it on here once to get more information on it because the doctor was just telling me to let him pass out...so needless to say i switched doctors. but it still freaks me out, i dont like it i feel like he is going to die (even though i know he will pass out and start breathing) i am just a worrysome person.
