How can I prevent tooth decay from nursing or a bottle?
Taking your baby off of the breast when he/she falls asleep can prevent baby tooth decay.  Hold your baby while bottle feeding.  Always take a bottle filled with milk or juice away from the sleeping child. 

If your child requires a bottle at bedtime provide a bottle filled with water.  Instead of a bottle try comforting your child with a pacifier or a favorite toy or blanket. 

Check with your health care provider to make sure your child is getting the right amount of fluoride.  Brush your baby's teeth with a soft toothbrush daily.

When should bottle feeding be stopped?
Begin teaching your baby to use a cup by seven months.  It's a good idea to introduce juice in a cup.  Your baby can be off the bottle by 12 months.
