I think I have a tooth boil what can I do for treatment I have no insurance/money for a dentist. I am brestfeeding I have acess to some antibiotics?

Please see dentist: I know you feel you can't afford a dentist, but you really MUST.

Further, you'll expose baby to non-useful antibiotics.Antibiotics will likely not cure this anyway. You either will need the boil drained, a root canal, or a tooth extraction. Are you near a dental school? ...Read more

Is a seaweed wrap body treatment safe while breastfeeding? I had one, if it is not, how long should I wait before breastfeeding again my 5 months old?

Is a seaweed wrap body treatment safe while breastfeeding? I had one, if it is not, how long should I wait before breastfeeding again my 5 months old?

Yes: As long as a seaweed wrap is definitely as it states just sea weed than it should be safe with breastfeeding. With that said, i would recommend contacting the spa / salon just to make sure there weren't any other chemicals . Even in the event that there were chemicals on your skin, once washed off breast feeding should be fine but i would still recommend consulting with a lactation consultant. ...Read more
