Clean your baby’s teeth and gums with a clean soft washcloth or gauze after each feeding.

Try and wean your child completely from their bottles by their first birthday.

Don’t sweeten a pacifier / soother by dipping them in sugar or any other sweeteners.

Don’t put juice or sweetened drinks in your baby’s bottle; restrict them to hand held cups if possible.

With the use of a cup, start weaning your baby from their bottle when they are 6 months old.

Take the bottle away from your baby before they fall asleep.
