No doses of fluoride from supplements are allowed months after birth,
but high doses of fluoride from water are encouraged months before birth.

Health authorities advise parents in unfluoridated communities to feed their infants fluoride supplements: a prescription drug that delivers 0.25 mg of fluoride in a dropperful of water whose fluoride concentration is 350 times higher than tap water's.

Children's health authorities have long cautioned that
fluoride supplements should not be given to
babies in their first 6 months after birth

Fluoride Irrationality: Supplements, Water, Toothpaste

Fetal fluoride levels average about two-thirds of maternal levels.

months before birth with doses higher than

A 0.25 mg dose of fluoride is 15 times higher than the daily amount
of fluoride that six-month-old breastfed infants consume.
