Tooth decay


Children who have a sugary diet are at risk of tooth decay.
For babies and toddlers, problems start when a bottle is used for comfort when going to sleep, to suck during the night or to snack on during the day.
If the bottle contains any drink other than water - even milk - the sugar in the fluid sits on the teeth and gums for some time.
This can cause decay, even before any teeth have broken through.
Avoid using a feeding bottle for comfort, and encourage your child to drink from a cup from about six months of age.
