Is there a proven link between breastfeeding and improved lifelong dental health? Do formula-fed babies get weaker teeth/thinner enamel? Thanks!
No direct link: Infants who fall asleep while either breast feeding and/or bottle feeding are both more prone to tooth decay as they don't swallow the last of thy milk or formula and it sits around their teeth all night causing decay. Bottles tend to be worse as the baby does not have to actively suck for liquid to keep dripping into their mouths. Either method used improperly will cause decay. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
