Follow these easy steps to keep your young child smiling.

Introduce a feeder cup as 12 months of age and wean off the bottle at around this time.

Make sure your child does not go to sleep with a bottle of milk or juice.

Do not let your child suck on a bottle as a comforter during the day.

Start brushing your child's milk teeth with fluoride toothpaste as soon as they come through.
