Chances are, you're using a bottle to feed your baby. Have you ever heard of "baby bottle tooth decay", or "nursing bottle mouth"? It's one of the common ways your baby can develop
cavities, and it can be avoided.
Baby bottle tooth decay occurs when a child's teeth are frequently exposed to sugary liquids for long periods of time, usually through extended nursing on milk (including breast milk), formula or juice at bedtime or naptime.
Never use a feeding bottle as a pacifier.
After each feeding, gently brush your baby's gums using water or a baby tooth and gum cleanser on a
baby toothbrush that has soft bristles. Or, wipe your baby's gums with a soft, damp washcloth or gauze pad.
Many people don't know that you don't have to wait until the first tooth appears to begin efforts to prevent tooth decay. You need to start providing good oral care for your children right from birth, because healthy teeth come from healthy gums.
