Re: Nursing to Sleep and Dental Care
What book was that? The Big Book of Making Life Harder for Nursing Moms?
This is an overcautious suggestion, appropriate only for babies with known enamel defects or evidence of decay. The sugars in breastmilk are not the ones associated with tooth decay, and because babies must be actively swallowing in order to keep milk flowing, breastmilk does not pool in the baby's mouth at night. That being said, it's a great idea to wipe down your baby's teeth once a day, and before bedtime is a nice time to slip that practice in.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
