I am seeing those white spots that develop into carries in my daughter, almost one now, and it is freaking me out! My son had four extractions along with four stainless steel caps put in soon after his second bday. It was a horrible situation to deal with. His teeth rapidly decayed and despite the six opinions we sought out nursing was blamed. I really think that our constant battle with thrush is to blame for very acidic little mouths, maybe even silent reflux, but I really don't 'know'.
We have been brushing with xylitol granules since my daughter was a few months old. We started just rinsing and wiping her gums then progressed to xylitol with the first tooth. Since I noticed the white spots I am giving her the MI paste as well since we still use it for my son and it was available. I also bought some good probiotics for each of us to take.
How can I keep her teeth healthy and you know, in her mouth?!
