I'm posting this because I thought other moms in this situation would like to know...  I've been stressed over my child drinking milk at night (and not liking water) because all parenting websites say NEVER give your child milk at night.  I went researching milk and tooth decay.  According to this expert in preventative dentistry, milk is a pretty safe drink to start with, but becomes a perfectly safe (and dentally beneficial) drink for them to drink at night if you just at a tiny amount of xylitol to it...

thanks for this!

 

i'll also throw in that my kids all drink bottles of raw milk for up to 3 years (i had one hold out a bit longer, but my MIL ended that recently) and right before bed, and the 2 that have seen the dentist had perfect teeth.  not only perfect, but free of plaque, tartar, and cavities.  the hygienists were really surprised.  

 

the dentist here http://www.grotondentalwellness.com/ also let her kids drink bottles of raw milk before bed, and hearing her speak encouraged me to let it go.

 

now i'm excited to learn how to make it MORE healthy!
