Bottle affecting my baby's teeth
My son is exactly 2 months now and he is still on bottle, his teeth are now rotten and getting smalle and smaller my sister thinks he's been on bottle for too long but I don't think so. Do you suggest that he stops drinking milk (NAN) or could it be something that he will overcome as the years go by?

I presume that you mean your baby is 2 years old. He should definitely come off the bottle which can affect his teeth. You need to clean his teeth twice a day and try and prevent any further damage to his teeth.
