Can use of artificial nipples through bottles, shields etc. cause tooth alignment problems in babies and require braces later. How to ensure straight alignment of baby teeth?

Neha Agarwal

Hi Deepashri. is there any reason why u consider using shield or bottle?

Deepashri Cornelius

Due to latching issues, doc suggested using shield. Now, I have to resume office hence I'm considering to use bottle where I can store expressed milk for feeds.

Use of a bottle can cause these jaw issues. It is not so prominent in use of nipple shield. However it is best avoided if possible.

Dear Mam, which alternatives should I consider other than bottle for feeding baby when I'm not around?
