My daughter is almost 2 1/2 and I nurse her 2 times a day (naptime and bedtime).
A couple of weeks ago, we took her to the dentist because I saw brown spots on both of her molars. We also noticed that she has a small hole in between front teeth. Her dentist said that she has cavities and strongly suggested that I stop nursing. Since my daughter does not eat sweets and she also doesn't drink much juice, she alluded that my breastmilk is the culprit of her cavities! Her dentist also said that my daughter's enamel was weak andg she has deep grooves on her molars that milk can get stuck there. As for the hole on her front tooth, her dentist said that the milk collects on her front teeth when she falls asleep. Is this all true?
I am extremely sad that I have to wean her!! My husband tried to put her to bed today and he was unsuccessful. I left and ran many errands to give her time to sleep and after 3 hours, she could not sleep. I nursed her to sleep and purposely pulled out after about 5 minutes and she cried bloody murder and finally fell asleep.
Does anyone have any advice for me on how to wean her?
