Tetanus shot okay for me?
I stepped on a needle last night while sewing. :banghead: And then found out this morning that my last tetanus shot was over 11 years ago. Is it okay for me to get one today while bfing my daughter? I may be pregnant as well but am not going to check until the end of the month! :lostit:

I would say yes. They advised me to get one in the hospital after DD was born --> which I did. I believe DD also got one in her first round of shots. But I'm not a professional!

I would think so. The best way to know is to call your doc and ask.

Thanks, I made an appointment with the local health department here. We just moved to a new town and DH's insurance doesn't start until June 1st. I will double check with them of course before I get the shot. :thumbsup:

I was just wondering if any mama's had one before while bfing? :goodvibes:

I needed on while I was bf'ing a 14 month old, and the lactation consultant from the hospital okayed it. I am not sure about exposure while pregnant, better ask an ob.
