I need a small operation to remove my toenail involving a local anaesthetic. Is this safe when breastfeeding? I have been told by the Podiatrist that they are unlikely to carry out the procedure unless I give up breast feeding. I really don't want to give up yet, especially if it is not necessary.
My son won't take a bottle, not that i would want to give him one but my foot hurts so bad im a grumpy mummy
well i assumed it would be ok as they gave me a local to do stitches after giving birth, is it stronger when they use it in other places? seems like mixed reviews on line so got a bit confused thanks for the links, i may print them off and show her
The Podiatrist should be able to tell you the half-life of the anesthetic. I had general anesthetic when I was BF my middle child and was told that waiting 4x the half-life before feeding again was erring on the side of caution.
