Bottle rot: How to prevent it..

If you have ever had a baby you know how hard it can be to wing them from the bottle. Most pediatricians say at about one they should no longer be on the bottle and they should be using a sippy cup. A child's teeth are susceptible to decay if he’s always drinking a sugared drink from a bottle — formula, milk, or juice. You should also never but a baby in his crib with a bottle or sippy cup as the 'sugars' from what they are drinking just lay in their mouths as they sleep. That is what can form tooth decay or 'bottle rot'. You can read more about it here on the importance of getting your baby on a sippy cup and off the bottle.
