    Just when I needed insight there it is. We too just went the dentist 2 days ago (10 months) and I was shocked that our dentist suggested weaning except for food reasons. She told me to brush teeth before bed and I explaind that she nurses to sleep ( which is fine with me). She said " NO, NO mom she is using you. I thought Yes that is the idea! She instucted me to use a pacifer instead- that I couldn't believe. Weird thing, she also nursed her kids and just last summer when LO was a month old saw us nurssing at a swim meet encouraged me not to cover and be proud of nursing! Thanks for the links... we will surely check them out.
    PS- my DH, who is a medical doc, said since when are dentist giving out parenting advise! Way to go DAD

    We brush before the nighttime nurse to sleep!
    That's what I count as 'brushing before bed'

    If you decide to stick with your dentist or change to another one, I recommend you send you reasons for concern to him in writing. Mention specifically the recognised organizations that support ‘extended’ breastfeeding and forward a copy to his professional association.

    I don't get this pacifier business! My 20 mth old is co-sleeping with me and uses me as a pacifier during the night. I mean what's so terribly wrong about that? It's beyond me! And why has everyone got to be sleeping through the night! Even adults don't sleep through! Mad!

    This dentist don't make any sense to me at all!! I know that teeth are less at risk from decay in the day time, cause you are constantly swallowing, and producing saliva, moving your mouth etc stopping the plaque from forming! I would have thought teeth are more at risk of decay at night time!! Because, there's very little movement in the mouth and the plaque gets to work!

    What a back to front dentist!!!

    I am glad you are getting another, he obviously doesn't know what's he's even talking about!
