See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I'm soooo upset! Today my dd had her very first dentist appointment. She is 3 1/2. Turns out she has SIX cavities!!!! I'm sooo upset and dumbfounded and shocked. My first thought was, 'oh my we better watch the sweet intake, but he didnt even say a word about food. You know what he told me?...Because I breastfed past one year! His first question was "how long was she on a bottle?" When I said never, she bf, he asked how long. When I told him about 2 years he says, "oh well that's why we recommend you only breastfeed for one year." And the look he came me made me want to spit fire in his face. First of all, when do you tell us that, because I never met you before in my life, and second, you don't even see patients until they are 3, so who are you telling this to? So then he starts talking about bringing her back in a couple weeks and that she was a good patient so he won't put her to sleep, but give her laughing gas instead. I mean really? It took us all week to get her comfortable about going there today, she was really worried. I know we need to take care of this before they get worse, but I'm so upset by the reason he gave is so disappointing, I never ever heard of this before. Ad even if it is a reason, why did this not even cross my mind in the two years of bf. anyone go through this? I feel so bad for her :(. Like its all my fault for doing what I thought was just best for her.
