Yeah that!!

I have talked to many Dentists. A baby who drinks from a bottle sucks differently than a baby on the breast. It is VERY unlikely a baby who nurses to sleep will get tooth decay because of it, if so its probably in their genes! Both my kids nurse to sleep & my DS has the "best teeth I've ever seen" says my dentist!

Oh yeah, if your worried just take your nipple out once he/she is out!
