I just got back from the dentist and the right side of my mouth is still numb from lidocaine. When can I nurse my baby again?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Lactstion

Local anaesthetic use during lactation is safe.
If you don't wish for your baby to ingest lidocaine/megx postoperatively, please pump breast milk and refrigerate for later use.
