Today I had an appt with a in home RN and I learned something i thought i would share. Did you all know that poor dental hygiene can lead to premature birth & low birth weight. One of the q's asked was how many times i brush my teeth, go to dentist & floss. I thought this was strange and she followed by telling me this tid-bit. Thought it was kinda cool! Brush those teeth Gals! Also it has been proven that if you chew Xylitol gum atleast 3 months after pregnancy that it will help your childs teeth. Studies on children at age 6 showed that mothers who chewed this type of gum for atleast 3 consecutive months after birth there kids had healthier teeth. It has something to do with the type of sugar in the gum. You can buy this type of gum at a health food store, called Xylitol. Or you can also purchase carefree koolers gum. Make sure when buying that Xylitol is the #1 ingrediant not the 5th in line. Some brands advertise that there gum has this in it, but so little that it doesnt matter...hehe well now that you have all had your tooth lesson!
