Melbourne: In wake of rising rates of severe tooth decay in infants as young as 12 months, a leading children`s hospital in Australia has urged parents to stop bottle-feeding their babies.According to Children`s Hospital at Westmead, prolonged feeding with bottles and infant formula are linked to the problem, especially at night, when children suck on bottles in their cots for extended periods, a newspaper reported.
Paediatric dentists had noticed a pattern of decay on the back of the upper front teeth, indicating the cause was drink from a bottle that had been held between the child`s tongue and teeth for prolonged periods. ANI
