do you think its child abuse?...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
To let a two year olds tooth rot because the parent cannot afford dental insurance or to pay for a visit upfront. They brush the babies teeth in the morning and at night. The tooth came in and quickly rotted from breastfeeding(she said the baby would fall asleep with milk in his mouth). I feel so bad for the baby and atleast its a baby tooth but do you think its child abuse? Also the mom is afraid for when she is able to take the baby to the dentist that they will call Cps on them. Other than this the parents are good parents. She plans on taking him to the dentist next month

People rot their kids teeth letting them fall asleep with bottles of milk or juice etc... Its not child abuse, its just unfortunate. Can they check with their local Health Dept ? They have dental services.

 I don't think it's abuse but definitely neglect.

What are you even talking about? Where did I insult anyone?

Oh so only you are allowed to throw out names?

Hmm

Quoting mommyrustina:

Quote the right person before you start throwing around insults..

Not even google university shows any indication of breastmilk being cariogenic. Try again. Breastmilk is capable of killing the bacteria responsible for tooth decay unless the child is predisposed for tooth decay, for example, naturally soft tooth enamel.


Quoting Anonymous:

I've heard it happens more than people think because of breast feeding. Not because it's breast milk but because of falling asleep with milk in the mouth etc...





Your the fucking idiot. Go google



Quoting mommyrustina:

If anything, breastmilk would have prevented that, even with falling asleep with it in his mouth.



Quoting Anonymous:

I'm just going off of what she said. She said that the baby would fall asleep with milk in his mouth and she thinks thats why it rotted!








Quoting Anonymous:

It's not from breastmilk you idiot! And she should get medicade if it quickly rotted its probably genetics or the baby hit it on something to discoloure it.
