    Tylenol (acetamenophen) and Advil (ibuprofen) are both safe when BF. I think there's lots of paineds that are compatible with BF. If you talk to your dentist and ask what they would recommend, they should know. If they don't, you can contact your local leader to ask, she has access to Hale's Medications and Mother's Milk, the bible of meds and BF.

    Oooo! Removal of wisdom teeth...

    Yes, there are many pain meds available to help the breastfeeding momma. Hale mentions ibuprophen to be one that is very compatible. As far as numbing meds, you may want to ask your dentist what kind they use and then check with your local Leader. Many breastfeeding mothers have had dental work done very safely.
