Dental work while Nursing

Make sure you tell your dentist to their face that you are breastfeeding, sometimes they don't pay attention to the form. Mine tried to prescribe me pain pills for a toothache the other day even though I told him ibuprofen was working fine. Alot of them don't know what is and is not safe for you. Ask your OBGYN before you take anything your dentist offers.

I am breastfeeding my 5 month old. About one month ago I had two fillings done. It wasn't a problem because I got a shot in my gums. However, I need to get a crown and my wisdom teeth pulled. Because of the anesthesia, I was told to wait from my dentists until I am done nursing. I wonder though if you have pumped milk ready for your baby while you are under anesthesia and for a while after if it would be ok. I don't know if that helped or not.
