Q.

rotten baby teeth

Hi
i breastfed my 4 year old daughter until she was 2years and 7months old (even while she was sleeping). This resulted in the decay of her 4 top baby teeth. I recently took her to a dentist who recommended that surgery be performed to fix everything. Personally i' m not comfortable with the idea as i feel she is still to young to endure surgery. I also saw a TV show where dental experts said that theteeth would eventually fall out and there would be nothing to worry about,
Kindly advise.

Thanks

Your dentist is 100% correct.
the teeth need to be removed- for a 4 year old child doing this under GA is the best option
