It's frustrating. I encountered the same problem at our pediatric dentist's office last fall when he asked whether my then-2-y.o. son was still nursing, sucking thumb, using paci, etc. I told him truthfully that DS was still nursing, and since I suspected that he would say something about it, I had brought with me printouts from kellymom.com explaining why breastfeeding is not a cause of dental caries. I even highlighted the main points. He not only argued against that, but he also refused to read or even accept the printouts I brought with me. I told him that he would certainly want to make sure that he was advising his clients based on the most current and accurate info, but no. How many mothers are weaning before they want to, based on wrong and fear-mongering info from ill-informed dentists?
