Breastmilk & Cavities


Does breastmilk cause cavities?


While breastmilk alone does not cause cavities, after your child’s teeth have erupted breastfeeding in combination with carbohydrates and sugars can cause cavities.

It is important to begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they come in.
