I have 4 or 5 teeth that need pulled. My mouth hurts so bad. But is it safe to do while bf?

I would pump before hand to be on the safe side and definitely ask your dentist or call a lactation specialist. I'm not sure how long medication stays in your body or if the lidocaine would be enough to affect your bm. [I'm sure it would...but still]

I would pump just to be safe, but as soon as you no longer feel numb the medicine is out of your system and out of your milk as well. There is no need to pump and dump or anything unless you're getting very full and need to relieve some pressure.

Thanks. I'll ask her pedi to be sure. I can wait til she's done bf if needed I've already put it off for being pregnant and til now so a few more months won't hurt. She's 10 months my goal is 1 yr but I'm letting her self wean

I got one done while pregnant, but not while BFing. I would check out the guide to see what medications are safe while BFing then see if you can request one of those specifically from the dentist just in case.
