Good advice

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services advises parents:
  • Avoid putting children to bed with a bottle at night or at nap time. If putting a baby to bed with a bottle, fill it only with water.
  • Do not give children a baby bottle or sippy cup filled with sweet drinks between feedings.
  • Begin teaching children to drink from an open cup near their first birthday.
  • Do not dip your child’s pacifier in anything sweet such as honey or sugar.
