Hi mamas,

I nurse my 15mo dd off and on all night and I have been getting worried about her teeth. Many people have told me that if they have milk sitting on their teeth all night long that it can cause ecc.
Aren't there many many babes out there nursing throughout the night?? Do they all get bad teeth?? I don't want to night wean yet....what do you wise mamas think??

it depends on the tissue in their mouth. tight frenulum can trap milk against teeth which can certainly cause issues. we aren't meant to have the tissue there, so while nighttime nursing *shouldn't* be an issue, it will be if the lip is anchored.
