Has anyone recieved a fluoride treatment while bfing? My hygienist did not know I was still breastfeeding until AFTER she gave me a this treatment. When she realized she asked the dentist who said I needed to wait 3 DAYS before bfing again!! My hygienist said she did not think this was right. She called the pharmacy and the pharmisist said there was no problem at all in breastfeeding after this treatment. Has anyone had this done while still nursing or do you know if this will make my baby sick???

Thanks....

if it's just a fluoride treatment I don't think it will harm your milk. I'm giving Marcus fluoride drops because there's no fluoride in the water. I seriously doubt it will hurt your milk at all!

I've had fluoride treatment both when pregnant and when breastfeeding. There is fluoride in toothpaste and in most drinking water, and it's not like you are drinking it that's why they put the suction in to limit the amount that actually gets ingested. Continue nursing and don't worry!

Your fluoride treatment was basically a swish and spit right? Since it wasn't swallowed there is no reason for it to be in your milk..

I know this is an old post but I had to respond because for the love of God people, educate yourselves! This is for the person who was giving her son fluoride drops 😳 (which is probably the most disturbing thing I have ever read on the internet).https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/magazin...rinking-water/

Thank you! Was thinking the same thing with the fluoride drops comment! Over fluoridation is a real thing and can destroy your teeth before they even come in! Mine have fluoride spots and the dentist said they will never be white. Plus all the other neurological damage it can do... yowch!
