Is it ok to put my child to bed with a bottle?

Q: Is it ok to put my child to bed with a bottle?

A: No. The child stops swallowing when they are asleep and the liquid pools up around the teeth. Baby bottle tooth decay can cause your child to have painful toothaches which can hinder eating. Decayed teeth may need to be extracted.
