The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
Usually, brown is an indication that something is or might go wrong, but of course your dentist is a better judge of that than I am
don't worry about your role ~ night nursing is okay, and you're very unlikely to be the cause of this.
And smilemomma would not recommend the fluoride drops, but brushing with teeny tiny bits of fluoridated toothpaste, which will deliver the fluoride right where it's needed instead of in her stomach.
I'll also dig up the thread for making brushing easier. It's very tough for lots of kids and parents, but it seems that after a few months most find a way to get used to it (even we did, and our dd refused to bathe for 2 years )
The threads here have been so helpful to me and have helped me to feel less alone. I still night nurse and ds shows no signs of weaning. I feel decay is probably combo of mostly bad genetics and some milk pooling. I really wanted weaning to be on his terms and am struggling with this issue, especially if it is affecting the health of his teeth. I will see what the prognosis is on his other teeth during his dentist visit in a few weeks and keep mulling this over. Brushing teeth is also a battle for us. He slowly gets a little better at it, but he is the type who wants to do things his way.
For now I have been calling other pediatric dentists for advice, scanning these threads and have an appointment with a naturopath to discuss homeopathics suitable for ds before and after dental visit. He will probably be traumatized and I want to try and minimize it best that I can. I would suggest that you see another pediatric dentist or more, even interview by phone to find one that feels right for you and your precious child.
This is no fun for sure. I am sending a lot of positive energy you way.

I was unable to access the whole fluoride link--many posts had been deleted--but our ds has a chip and decay and had them before he ever had fluoridated water or solids.
Dental filling is one of the best option for teeth chipping with same tooth colored filling. For more help, consult to doctor is second best option.
