I love drinking warm milk w/ honey before I sleep. I do a detailed cleaning right after but even w/ brushing, can it cause cavity? I now use a straw

Drinking it (with\without a straw) over a short period of time followed by rinsing (brushing & flossing) minimizes the chance of cavities. My recommendation- have your own dentist evaluate the health of your teeth. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

No: Feeding a baby as they arise and never as part of a sleep ritual does more for good sleep habits than anything.

I have heard that drinking warm water with honey early in the morning is very good for your health. It also reduces ypur weight. Is this really true?
Maybe!: The idea is that the tryptophan (found in turkey as well!) helps you to relax by increasing serotonin in the brain. A glass of warm milk to help you fall asleep has never been proven, but if you feel it helps then it probably does! Its not harmful, just don't drink too much or you will wake up all night having to go to the bathroom! ...Read more
