A British doctor strongly advises against kissing babies on the mouth – especially if their milk teeth have not yet broken. We explain the reasons to you.
As parents, it is the most normal thing in the world to kiss your own child, even on the mouth. It is a sign of affection and love. And no matter if someone is bothered by it, we parents love to hug and kiss our children. But a British dentist is now spoiling this proof of love for us. From a medical point of view, he even urgently advises parents not to kiss their baby on the mouth.
For Dr. Richard Marques , a dentist from Great Britain, is anything but harmless a parental kiss on the child’s mouth. A kiss on the mouth leads to the exchange of bacteria and they can break the baby’s teeth, even if they haven’t even broken through.
