Re: No nursing to sleep?

well, my mommy instincts were wrong. Given our family history - good to excellent oral health, and the difference between breast and bottle, i chose to continue night nursing.

I also withheld processed sugar, brushed 2x a night and watered all juice.

My son is now facing general anesthesia and 4 crowns at 17 months old. They may not even be able to save one of the teeth.

I'm heartbroken to know that my decision, although informed, caused this.

Re: No nursing to sleep?

oh no!

I have nursed bella at night for 3 years next month and we have had no problems.
From what I have read, there is conflicting information on this. Normally, I would say that it is genetics that play a role and there is no real issue with night nursing.
I come from a family where half of us have great teeth and the other half have problems no matter what.

I really hope it works out for your little guy

Re: No nursing to sleep?

Aww Mama I really doubt it was the nursing :hug:......My son had to have general for dental work too. He nursed all night until he was 18 months and our dentist said that wasn't what caused it. We did brushing, little juice, etc also. Ours turned out to be abnormal enamel on his teeth. Plus my parents had terrible teeth and so do he inherrited the lovely genes too.
