Hi I have a 15wk old DS who is breastfed, next week I have to have 3 fillings that I've been putting off since I was pregnant. . Anyway I have read that white fillings are better as the metal ones contain Mercury so I'm going for white.. my concern is do the injections get into the milk? Would you express a batch before? hmm

You don't need to stop breastfeeding while having a filling having a metal filling would be fine to. There is more worry about Mercury from eating to much tuna.

The BfN have a good fact sheet hear for you to readhttps://www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk/drugs-factsheets/
