dentist/breastfeeding question l8kersgirlkt 1 child; Trenton, New Jersey 206 posts

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I have a dentist appointment tomorrow for a cleaning and checkup (xrays and all cuz I haven't gone in 3 years, horrible I know) but anyway I'm exclusively breastfeeding my 10 week old. Is there anything they shouldn't use/do tomorrow? I'm pretty sure I have a cavity but they won't fill it tomorrow. So anything I need to worry about for just a routine cleaning? TIA

Everything's fine, just make sure they shield your breasts for the xrays.

you should be just fine. Had many cleanings while BFing. Just wear that lead apron they give you for xrays. Good luck. I hate the dentist
