During breastfeeding, the baby's tongue performs a rhythmic motion that stimulates the development of the palate and jawbone. The constant movement of the tongue also helps to strengthen the muscles of the face and neck, promoting the proper alignment of the teeth and jaws.
On the other hand, bottle-feeding with a nipple or pacifier can negatively impact oral development, as the movements required for sucking are different than those used during breastfeeding. This can lead to malocclusion, which is the misalignment of the teeth and jaws, and other issues related to facial growth.
