Early Childhood Cavities?
Oh, no -- could it be? Cavities at such a young age? Nursing caries, perhaps? Any experience to share with Maria?
Few weeks ago I noticed some tiny black dots on my 13 month old baby's front tooth. When I asked the pediatritan about it she was very quick to "diagnose"" early childhood cavities. What??? the one and only pice of sweet food that my boy has ever had was this all organic-homemade-blueberry cake for his birthday. He is still breastfeeding and I cook all meals for him from scratch. I chose not to give him the fluoride and hope not to have to do it. I don't understand... no candy, no ice cream, no juice...what went wrong then? The cavity seems pretty small and I am meeting with the pediatric dentist very soon but what do you mamas know about this?
