Mother Refuses Breastfeeding Baby Born With Teeth

A 26-year-old mother, Vicki Griffiths has declined breastfeeding her new born baby after she discovered she was born with two fully formed front teeth.

It was when Vicki went to have a bath after giving birth that her husband Steven noticed the teeth in his daughter’s lower jaw. Vicki said, ‘When I came back into the room Steven said, “she’s got teeth, you know!” and then we both burst out laughing. ‘We were in shock, and so were the midwives.

According to Vicki, she had planned to breastfeed the baby but changed her mind when she saw the teeth.


The mother-of-three said she went to see her GP after she came out of hospital and “he said that he had never heard of this happening before. Midwives with 25-years’ experience were also saying they’d never seen it.”
