Our sweet daughter is 2 and a half and has had two cavities since the age of 1. These cavities
progressed so rapidly that they resulted in 2 eye teeth being extracted. We just found out that
she has two more. Our homeopathic doctor feels that she has a genetic tendency to dental caries.
Our dentist feels that she also has a genetic predisopostion and that the night nursing is helping to create rapid decay. This opinion is held by one other dentist who has examinated her.
Sadly, we are feeling that we must nightwean her quickly to avoid 2 more teeth being removed. We are concerned about weaning being traumatic because we don't feel there is time to gradually wean
her as we would have wanted to. Right now, she is used to nursing to sleep (even for naps throughout the day) and all through the night (up to 6 times a night, sometimes more). We would love to hear some ideas, experiences, thoughts on weaning and having to wean suddenly.....etc.
