That is a bummer. My nephew suffered a similar fate after having been prescribed quite a few antibiotics as a baby. Before that, I hadn't realized that medications can affect tooth development too. His permanent teeth have been strong and healthy, I'm sure the same will be true for T. Poor baby.

We used Dora's book about going to the dentist, but that was more about check ups, which T has already made it through.

Good luck with everything!

I know--it's rotten luck. T. was on Topamax for two years, I wonder if that weakens teeth, too?
