Extended Breastfeeding

I was so proud of myself for doing the right thing. I've been breastfeeding my son (number 5) for 20 months, despite the negative reactions I've received from friends and family. Now the dentist says that They may have to remove 2 of Joey's front teeth next month. He has Nursery Decay.
I am so angry that I did not find out about this until it was too late, so I want to warn people who are nursing past 1 year. I let my son sleep with me, and he would nurse at night a couple of times, but in that situation, apparently, some milk stays in their mouth while they sleep. I knew it was bad to put a child to bed with a bottle because the milk or juice would stay in their mouth. But I figured breastfeeding is natural, the way God intended, and I never dreamed it could hurt him.
The dentist recognized that I brush his teeth often because his gums are healthy. We keep him away from sweets, too. But now his beautiful smile is damaged because of me.
If I had it to do over again, I would stop the sleep nursing when his teeth started to come in. Maybe give him a water bottle at night.
Please learn from my mistake.
Taking it one day at a time.
