how true that eggs affects baby teeth and could cause decay since its high in protein?

Protein: Protein doesn't cause tooth decay. Decay is caused by bacteria taking sugars out of foods and converting sugars into acids, which etch the calcium out of tooth enamel. If you child has teeth present, and especially if baby has celebrated 1st b'day, it's time for Dental Examination. Search out a pediatric Dental Specialist who can help you with diet, oral hygiene, development, fluoride, etc.
