I'm very paranoid about my dds teeth. (She is 12 months) I brush her teeth mid morning and right before bed, after she's nursed. Sometimes she nurses to sleep, so I brush her teeth well before we nurse and then I try to brush her teeth quickly before I lay her down. She still nurses about 2x at night. It's flipping impossible to brush at night while we are both half asleep. Especially with how much she cries every time I brush her teeth... I'm trying to keep us all in a sleepy state to go back to sleep quickly.
Any tips? What do you after night feeds? Anything?
I know they say breast milk doesn't rot the teeth like formula does (since formula has sugars and breast milks antibacterial properties helps) but there is that chance. And that scares me.
