Breast milk contains everything babies need, and breastfeeding will allow them to build up the best possible bone and dental capital. Another advantage is that breastfeeding requires less effort than bottle feeding, and suckling at the breast promotes the development of facial and jaw muscles.

Babies that are breastfed grow into adults with better aligned teeth who require less orthodontic work later in life. If, in spite of all this, mothers still opt for the bottle, they should choose a teat as similar to a human nipple as possible.
