Re: Baby nursing often at night?
Welcome to the forum!
Unless your baby has unusually weak tooth enamel, there's no reason to worry about night nursing causing cavities. First, the sugars in breastmilk aren't the ones that are associated with tooth decay. Second, the breast delivers milk in a very different way from the bottle. A bottle will continuously drip milk into a baby's mouth, and milk will pool in the mouth, even when the baby isn't actively sucking. The breast, on the other hand, does not deliver milk unless the baby is actively sucking and swallowing. This means that milk cannot pool in the mouth. That's why tooth decay in babies is called "baby bottle mouth", not "baby breastmilk mouth".
