So YDD had a dental appt today to discuss her tooth decay in her two front teeth. (I made a post about this yesterday in regards to lip tie)
She told me that it was infact, decay. That really upset me. She asked me if she had a bottle at night. I told her she may nurse at night sometimes. She was like "Chances are, the breastmilk is staying on her teeth at night and slowly decaying. You can see the decay starts in the back of the teeth and works its way around her front teeth"
So basically, she's telling me to night wean. DD is only 13 months and I'm not sure if she's ready or not. She doesn't nurse at night everynight, just maybe two or three days a week? And it's maybe once or twice in the middle of the night when/if she stirs and wakes up.
Ultimately though, I'm not 100% sure I trust the dentist. Is it even possible for breastmilk to cause this kind of tooth decay? The hygenist at first told me usually "bottle rot" and such occurs in between teeth, and her decay is at the bottom of her teeth. Should I get a second opinion?
