Very useful article. Even I have started brushing my son's teeth when he was 1 year old. I am using finger brush from Mothercare store & toothpaste from Patanjali which is meant for small childrens. Is it safe to use this product.

Dear Ira, you can give her unsweetened milk. But you should also start weaning him.

Thanks for such an important information. My baby boy will turn 1 in the next month. He is completely breastfeed. I just want to ask that I give him water to drink in the bottle in which generally mothers give their baby milk. Is giving water in the bottle can also cause cavities in his teeth? Please suggest!!

Hey My boy is on formula milk. He feels hungry in the mid of the night. He is half asleep that time and feeding him with fruits or any other semi solids might choke him so i didn't try giving him any solids . Will try once lets see how it goes. Thanks for the suggestion Megha :)

Hi Ira... first of all just want to know do you breast feed your child as he is only 16 months old, am askin... the dentist who I spoke to had mentioned that when toddlers are been breast fed it's okay if you don't brush their teeth as mothers milk is known to be the best healthy thing and has the ability to fight any bacteria or germs. You can do one more thing why don't you put few apples in your bedroom. Apple will not harm his teeth. So when your son feels hungry You can cut small pieces (chewable) so that his hunger dies down... don't worry this waking up at night thing will ease off once he turns 3. Hope this proves to be helpful

Thank for sharing this information. Iam really worried about the dental care of my lil one. He is 16 mths now and still he does not allow me to brush his teeth or clean his tongue. Also we have put him into the habit of having his dinner early and sleep by 10pm max because of which he feels hungry at night and wants milk. Feeding milk while asleep is only possible by bottle . Its advised not to bottle feed while asleep . Please suggest how do i manage feeding him at night and also encourage him to brush teeth and clean his tongue.
