Nursing Mom Goes To Dentist

Posted by on February 22, 2012

I had an old filling go bad over the 3 day weekend, so instead of enjoying the Monday holiday with Don and our son, I made a fun trip to the dentist.  UGH!!!

They were able to get me in on short notice Monday morning, and I’m thankful for that.  However, I didn’t have time to pump before I left, so I ended up thawing out one of my emergency supply bags.  I guess we will count this as an emergency.  I was nervous about leaving Don & baby alone.  They haven’t been left alone together for months!  My little bug takes a sippy cup on random occasions, but never often so I was worried he would get hungry.  The appointment also happened to be during nap-time.

Don’t worry, I called the Infant Risk Center to be sure that the medications for the dental work were Ok while nursing.  I also double checked on some pain meds for after.

As I sat in the dental chair, I could see my precious milk split and lots of crying.  I envisioned the chaos as I pulled into the garage and ran into the house.  To my complete amazement my baby had fallen asleep by his daddy shortly after I left and hadn’t even needed the sippy cup!

For the rest of the day, Don took care of everything but mealtimes.  I’m so blessed to have such a wonderful husband!

One major downside to nursing and dental work is those swift, flailing arms to the jaw!  I’m still in pain and I think it’s mostly because someone keeps bumping my face…..oh well at least he’s a cutie!
