Teeth

The bottle changes the way their grow and creates bottle.rot.if you put baby to bed with a bottle.

At.least that's what I have been told

Teeth can become crooked.

Or even a pacifier really. At that age they're doing it more to soothe than anything else.

a two year old can still get accustomed to the use of a cup when they're breastfeeding. All other liquids they receive in a cup. When you're giving all of a child's liquids from a bottle they learn only to drink from there.

Breastfeeding actually helps them come in straight. :)

Breast feeding is actually good for muscle and jaw development.

Because bottles and breast work differently. Bottles are bad for teeth. Breast milk and breastfeeding aren't.

Not always true,
My sons almost 2 and takes a bottle of water to bed. But during the day he drinks from cups.
