It might be: Treatment really depends on exactly what the problem is. To find out, make an appointment with a pediatric dentist. This needs to be addressed.

Oh, my: this can be dangerous, may affect baby and underlying permanent teeth, and can travel through blood stream to damage other organs. Probably is decay from milk sugars being converted by bacteria (baby teeth need to be cleaned) into acids...baby bottle syndrome. 1st dental appointment should correspond with 1st b'day. Please call a Pediatric Dental Specialist (as opposed to GP) IMMEDIATELY.
