I'm new to this site, but not to nursing. Oddly enough, I've never had major dental work while nursing my other children. I had 2 large cavities filled today with (I think) 2 shots of Novocain. The dentist advised me to pump & discard for 48 hours, so I wanted to know if this is necessary. I don't mind, but I know it will be difficult for the baby (he's 8 months). Any info. will be appreciated.
