Nursing A Baby With Teeth Is No Big Deal

A baby born with two teeth made the news recently, and her mom said that she didn’t want to breastfeed her because of it. Are baby teeth enough of a reason to discontinue (or never begin) breastfeeding? Most moms say no.

Breastfeeding a baby with teeth

A British mom and her husband were shocked when their baby girl was born with two fully-formed teeth. She changed her mind about breastfeeding her, but moms everywhere insist that nursing a baby with teeth really is no big deal.

A rare sight

Babies born with teeth are a rare occurrence. Vicki Griffiths was totally surprised, then, when her baby girl Eva was born with two fully-formed chompers. According to Medline Plus, natal teeth (teeth present at birth) happen once every 2,000 to 3,000 births. Often, these tiny teeth don’t have a good root system and are quite wobbly, and if that’s the case, they can be removed to reduce the chances of one coming loose and being aspirated by the infant.

So it’s understandable that Vicki and her husband, Steven, were astounded when they noticed that their newborn daughter came complete with a couple of her baby teeth present and accounted for.

Doctors have examined the little girl and declared that she is in no danger from the teeth, so it sounds like they have a good root system and don’t need to be removed, which is good news for the family.

Breastfeeding with teeth

However, I was a bit bummed to read that this is the only reason she’s not going to breastfeed her girl. Baby teeth like Eva’s, located on the bottom jaw, won’t even come into contact with Mom’s breast during nursing -- the baby’s tongue comes in between the teeth and the nipple.

And most babies start getting teeth between 4 months and 10 months. Moms everywhere breastfeed babies with teeth all the time. I’ve nursed babies with full sets of teeth. Many moms have.

It’s her baby, of course, and her breasts, and she has the right to decide how she’s going to feed her. I just wish she knew that breastfeeding a baby with teeth really isn’t that big of a deal, especially since she said she wanted to nurse her in the first place.
