A lot of women say that the doctor or pediatrician told them that their baby developed a cavity because he is being breastfed, and were advised against nighttime feeding. Babies, whether they are breastfed or bottle-fed can sometimes face the risk of tooth cavities. The reason behind it is: during nights, whenever you feed the baby, whether it's formula or breast milk, it tends to pool inside the baby's mouth. That's because at night, the cleansing action of saliva is not optimal because supply of saliva diminishes at night. As a result, sugars from the milk cling to the baby's teeth and gums, and along with the bacteria already present in the mouth, act together to form an acid, which can erode the delicate surface of a baby's tooth, causing decay and cavities.
