Re: Does BFing cause tooth decay? How to find pro-BFing dent
I BF my son until he was 2 years old... ALL NIGHT LONG (lol). I didn't take him to the dentist until he was 3 (oops), but he didn't have any cavities. From the research that I have done, it seems that people just don't agree on whether night nursing causes cavities. Here is a link with some info: http://kellymom.com/health/baby-health/tooth-decay/
Honestly, if I was told to stop nursing by a dentist, I think I would have just nodded my head and then not listened. I wonder if your dentist will even ask you though. When we just took my son, they asked what he drinks and eats, so it was up to me to respond the way I wanted to.
