I've used it as a natural chewing gum and I found it to be unpleasant in texture.


I think that you should have no problem re nursing because it is a natural resin that is antimicrobial (as most resins are). Whatever benefits you would receive would be transferred to your child.


Be careful with any dental work!!


My advice would be: try it - carefully :)
