Is anyone using these? What's the deal? Our ped. offerred them at the six-month check-up, and I said "no thanks," but thought I'd check in with you all to see what people think. My mom pointed out that it would be nice to avoid cavities and dental bills, etc. I don't know much about fluoride. . . what is it anyway? We don't have fluoride in the water here, so if I don't give the drops, my babes won't get any. Maybe this is a good thing?

Thanks!

Lex

edited to fix the spelling of "fluoride"

Thank you so much, especially for the links! Wouldn't it be nice if the ped. would give us that information when offering the drops? I'm going to print out a few copies of those articles for the moms in my baby group. When I asked them if they were giving the drops they all said "yes," and then talked about how much their babies hated them. I'm sure none of them even questioned whether or not to give them. . . Oh well.

I will continue to blindly refuse everything my ped. offers :LOL !
