    Question:

    Hello.

    I have a son of 6 years who like to ALWAYS have something to drink when he is in bed. He always get water because I believe it is the best when the teeth are brushed...BUT my gf does not think it does anything he get the milk??...can it really be??...seemed to always I have heard that milk can also provide holes in the teeth...or maybe it is the only infant formula that is not smart after brushing??

    Answer:

    Dear Catfish,

    You are absolutely right in what you say. Milk can provide holes in the teeth, because it contains milk sugar. No matter what type of milk we are talking about. So hold fast to your son should only have water to drink before bedtime.

    Hope you can use my answer.

    With kind regards
