we're not judging you. (at least, I don't see anyone judging you) We're just saying don't give her milk when she sleeps. Give her something else in the bottle.

:roll: Mmk. I'm not judging, nor am I perfect. But thank you for the compliment :P




If she is so dependent on the bottle, give her like 2oz of water. Not only are you wasting formula (and money) with every spoiled bottle, you're giving your poor child's teeth an ice cubes chance in hell to stay healthy.



**eta**
and like I said, what if she happens to pick up the spoiled bottle? I know you said she can't but what if she does? She'll drink expired, bacteria filled formula and it'll make her sick.

Giving her juice is a bad idea as well. Putting her to bed with anything in a bottle will rot her teeth.

I have been wondering this for a while. I would like to know why it is bad to put your babies down with a bottle at night in the crib. And if your baby still feeds at night, do you pick her up and feed her if she can feed herself? (Non sarcasm)

ever give a bottle in bed. It rots their teeth and increases the chance of ear infections you wouldn't want to have to get tubes put in hear ears and have her teeth filled with cavities because you put her to bed with a bottle would you?

Chances of ear infections and can rot their teeth. And yep every time DD woke up at night I got her out of bed fed her and put her back down

How does it increase ear infections? Because of possible dribbling? Wht if they don't have teeth? I wipe my daughters gums morning and before bed.

I do the same thing. My baby is 15 months and he still wakes up sometimes. Mostly if he's teething. But if he wakes up, I sit in my bed, give him the bottle and then put him back in his crib. Did the same thing with my older one.

So if you pick up your baby and hold then while they eat or even have a bottle during the day for example it won't rot there teeth but if you do it at night it will? Weird.

umm yeah. Because at night they are sleeping, they can fall asleep with it in their mouth. It sits on their teeth for hours. They can also choke if they fall asleep with milk in their mouth. The list of risks of the bottle in the crib goes on and on and on.

But then I've been told its ok to nurse baby to sleep. Milk will also sit in the mouth if they do not wake to swallow it.

BUT they are also on their side; not on their back or anything. And they are in your arms, if they start choking on it; you can easily get them to start breathing again, quicker than if you just leave them in a crib with a bottle.
