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 more

What can you do for teething babies?

What can you do for teething babies?

Let them chew: Chewing on something cold and firm is helpful. One idea is to give them a damp washcloth that has been frozen in the freezer to chew on. Commercial teeth rings that can be frozen are available as well. Teething is a normal process. I would avoid medication like painkillers unless absolutely necessary. Most babies really don't need them. ...Read more
