my baby' s teeth

the two top front teeth are clowdy like, yellowish and a sort of a small brownish hole is started. what could this be?

i brush his teeth with aquafresh milk teeth twice a day and he mainly drinks rooibos tee as he is allergic to milk. i also think he is deficient in culcium, what supplements can i give him? he is 19 months old

i did take him to the dentist who told me that there is nothing can be cos he is still so young!

You might be putting sugar in the rooibos teeth thats causing the teeth to decay.avoid putting sugar in the tea.

you can give your baby zymaflour tablets once daily.

My son is 18 months - born prem,in nicu for 1 month, last yr in hosp with bronco pnemonia-front and side tooth are yelowing,others are fine. Is this normal or due to antibiotics &  meds he had at birth? Eats well, loves milk and water,yoghurt-no sweets,doesn' t like juice. Is there reason for concern? Zymaflor ?
