    Default Milk teeth and night feeding

    DS1 is cutting two teeth, he's just turned five months.

    I've read a couple of things online and wanted to ask in the pro-breastfeeding area what other people have been told/experienced in terms of protecting teeth?

    Is it true that night feeding will hurt baby teeth?

    DS1 feeds every 2-3 hours overnight.

    As far as I know since BF takes the nipple to the back of the mouth/throat and it goes straight down and does not pool in the teeth therefore does not hurt/decay the teeth.
