Have been out and bought anbesol liquid today as DD is in agony at night. Thing is I've heard I shouldn't use anything that numbs the mouth when bfing because she might not be able to feed. She really needs some relief though. I thought of giving her the last feed of the night and then when she falls asleep rubbing a bit on her gums then. Do you think that will work ok? Has anyone else used it? Thanks.

I've used anbesol before feeds and it seems to be fine. I hadn't heard that you shouldn't though...

It's just something I have read here and there, not that you shouldn't just that it could numb their mouths. Makes no odds really as she latched on straight after I put it on so prob washed it all off hmm Did it work well for your lo?
