Can I BF after getting a shot of NOVACAINE?

I have a dentist appointment on Thursday and I am 99% sure that I am going to have a tooth filled.

I asked (to be sure) and they give novacaine.

My question...can I BF afterwards? If not, how long should I wait?

Thanks mamas.

You go painkiller-free?

I HATE HATE HATE needles and it makes me so stressed to know that I will have to get a shot but I never thought about going without it. How is that doable? Did you have to get your tooth drilled? (Sorry if that is a stupid question, I have not had a lot of dental work done.)

yep-here's the thing- it kind of is annoying or maybe even hurts for like one to maybe 5 minutes then its over with- no drooling or numb lip for 3 hours- with this novocaine my nose even got numb- I have had drilling and all that stuff without novocaine. You can have them try without novocaine and if it gets too bad they can give it

Re: Can I BF after getting a shot of NOVACAINE?

To put the dental stuff in perspective, I nursed after having my wisdom teeth pulled. The dentist said I should not, just to cover his butt, but I called an LC and looked every med up myself, and it was okay! You are just fine with the Novacaine!

Hmmm, I'm gonna have to think about that. I am such a sissy but if I didn't have to get the shot it may be worth a few minutes of pain. Thanks mama.
