Baby Teeth

Today my little boy had his last follow up appointment at the Dental Hospital. A few weeks ago he had to have 6 of his baby teeth extracted under general anaesthetic! He sailed through it - I was an absolute wreck!! The Dental Consultant told us that his baby teeth had decayed because he had been breastfed after his teeth had come in and that the decay had been caused by the natural sugars found in breastmilk!! I would never have thought that was possible - but if you think about it logically then it all becomes quite understandable!!

poor little thing! My daughter was breastfed until 15 months - lucky her teeth weren't early coming through!
