Hi, I have been exclusively BF my twin boys for 18 months now. Recently I have been noticing kind of grey "film" on their teeth like when you have from coffeine or drinking red wine....I am still BF them to sleep and one of them at night (well working on night weaning). I read a lot controversial things regarding breast milk and cavities...plus my step mom is a dentist and keep telling me stories how her patients babies who BF at night have horrible teeth....I brush their teeth twice a day, I don't give them any sweet drinks, they never drank from bottle, they eat really good, very low sugar....does anybody has experience with these "stains"....could it be something else? My husband says that it can be from low iron (they have to take iron supplements)....I really want to keep BF them and keep their teeth healthy at the same time.
Thank you for the inputs :-))
