Breastfeeding and teeth braces

Hi Doc,

I will be putting braces on at the end of April. My baby is just over a month, will this cause any problems with my breastfeeding seeing that the braces will be metal.

Thanks

No, it will not affect your breastfeeding.
Just make sure the dentist knows you are breastfeeding in case he has to prescribe antibiotics or use a local anasthetic for any reason - though that isn''t usual with braces.
