My name is David, and my wife is breast feeding our 1 month old baby boy.
She has had teeth problems for the last several months, she couldn't do anything while pregnant. We are wary about doing anything about it even now because she is breast feeding. The problem is the pain is becoming unbearable.
We saw the dentist as an emergency appointment the other day and they did a filling, which fell out again the same evening so that hasn't really helped at all. We have another appointment next thursday.
My wifes teeth situation is that one tooth has an exposed nerve and one tooth has an infection. She said that
I guess my question is, is there anything that she can take to relieve the pain, or at least take the edge off. If she wasn't breast feeding I would get her to take Ibuprofen to reduce inflammation and dull the pain, but she can't take that. Is there may be a natural way that wouldn't be harmful for the baby?
Thank you for any help :)
