    Unhappy Breastfeeding and Dentist....

    I have to get a tooth pulled tomorrow and have to be put under, They told me I could not breastfeed for 24 hours, but my daughter is 3 months and does not take a bottle yet. Is this true??

    Oh dear, it looks like this got missed. I'm so sorry about that.

    How did it go?

    For future reference and for anyone else with the same question -- the general guideline is that once the anesthesia has worn off enough that you can safely hold your baby, it's also safe to nurse.
