While there are no studies on the passing of Peridex into breastmilk, since it is a local mouthwash and not swallowed, likely the amount absorbed by you would be very small.  Asking your physician is the best course of action.  My preference is to always have mamas choose options that support the breastfeeding relationship whenever possible.  Often there is an alternative if a doctor feels that a certain medication is contraindicated in breastfeeding - just ask them about alternatives.

 

Warmly,

Dr. Jennifer
