    I am a firm believer in flouride. I worked in the dental field for over 10 years before my LO came along and now I stay home. I have seen the difference flouride makes in teeth and it is amazing. I have my LO on flouride/vitamins right now.

    do you mean as a supplement? I have never given my kids any vitamin/mineral supplements like this ... they have great teeth... (and dont drink the tap water. CA tap water is Naa-haaaa-sty!)

    Our ped prescribed a fluoride supplement that I have yet to use, it's called poly-vi-flor. I tasted it, and it is disgusting, like fluoride treatment, but worse. I can't bring myself to give it to her. I did hear that babies are not supposed to have fluoride until after the 24 month mark as well, but I don't remember why.
