To increase your child’s oral health, introduce a sippy cup when your medical provider clears you to begin the process of bottle weaning. Drinking from a cup lessens the likelihood of liquids pooling and resting in the mouth, which tends to occur more frequently with bottle feeding. Even though it’s convenient to put babies to bed with a bottle, this feeding method contributes to tooth decay and other health conditions, so try to limit or eliminate bottles during sleeping times.
