We recommend that a baby is off the bottle by age one. A sippy cup with milk or juice in it, it is no better than a bottle. We basically do not want the child sipping sugary beverages throughout the day. Carrying a bottle or a sippy cup around with them with anything but water in it makes that much more likely to develop tooth decay. Sippy cups are fine to avoid spills, but water is best to have in there. Even a child that continues to breastfeed throughout the night, after starting to eat solid foods, is at high-risk for developing tooth decay. Early childhood carries (cavities) is the most common chronic childhood disease in America, and it is preventable. #NCDHM
