Re: No on demand nursing after teeth???

Difference is, milk generally doesn't continue to drip into the baby's mouth if the baby isn't sucking, like it would with a bottle.

This is misguided information.

Humans are really meant to BF until 5-7 years old - that's the way it was long ago, and the way it still is in many under-developed nations (and some still BF this long in the US). My DS2 decided to wean himself at 3 years, and the night time nursing was the last to go...he has PERFECT teeth.
Mama to a beautiful deaf son (bilateral cochlear implants - my baby can hear!!) born 6/13/08 and a hearing son born 1/7/10, who are intact, , , and !!
