We have a 20 month old son with some dental issues. We're a Weston Price family for the past 6 months. Here's where we're at : he has cavities on his upper molars, one on the front of each lateral incisor and possibly a cavity on the lower molar. The ones on his lateral incisors are on the top portion. Started out as white spots that are turning brown with loss of enamel and a scratchy feeling. He is breastfed on demand and does night nurse.
I believe the cavities come from either a gut imbalance that we're working on and or my own cavities. I developed cavities last year, about 5 months before his molars turned colors. My husband has never had a cavity in his life, but developed one this year too. Bacteria-City in our house, I think.
Here's our plan : Xylitol 5 times daily, Act Kids with Fluoride ( this has a very small amount of fluoride, we have fluoride-free drinking water ). MI Paste at night. He also has raw milk, FCLO, and Butter Oil. We also just started a silver spray after meals. This is our family plan, since we have a family issue. My husband and I will also be using Cloysy mouth rinse. I'm a HUGE breastfeeding advocate, but until we can get the bacteria under control, he'll be night weaned but can nurse on demand during the day.
Has anyone had success with MI Paste and Xylitol? Please share your stories. I'll be taking a picture of our son's teeth to help better track any progress.
Please share. I'm desperate from some encourage.
