Is it bad for her teeth to sleep with a bottle?
Falling asleep with a bottle is generally bad for a baby’s teeth and is not recommended. It has been associated with getting cavities at a younger age. The other thing to think about is that when a baby falls asleep at bedtime with a bottle, he is more likely to need a bottle to return to sleep after he wakes naturally during the night. That said, it can also contribute to developing sleep problems.About Dr. Sarah Honaker
