The pediatrician prescribed fluoride drops for my daughter at 6 months and my husband and I researched it and made the decision not to give them to her. Fluoride is a toxin and we feel is more dangerous than people think. But I'm starting to get worried about cavities. My daughter likes to drink apple juice (diluted) and her food occasionally has sugar. (oatmeal, cookies, fruit) So it wouldn't be a surprise if she got a cavity. I brush her teeth as well as possible. Always before bed and usually before her nap. My mom said when she was a kid they didn't have fluoride supplements and they averaged 8 cavities a year on baby teeth! We got the drops and had no cavities. Considering having a talk with hubby and starting the drops maybe in half the recommended dose. Any opinions/suggestions?
