Breastmilk and bottle feeding

Breast milk is best for your baby’s teeth

If you aren’t breastfeeding, infant formula is the next best option.

If you are bottle-feeding:

  • Prevent tooth decay by putting your baby to bed without a bottle.
  • Do not put your baby to bed with a sugary drink in their bottle.
  • Take the bottle away as soon as your baby has finished feeding.
  • Swap the bottle for a sippy cup by the age of one.
