Bonjela- before or after a feed?

dd is 11mths, breastfed, and teething up a storm! She is feeding for much longer than usual atm, continuing to suck for AGES after the milk has gone, which I presume is just for comfort, and it's killing me at night as we're back to really long feeding sessions. I thought maybe if I gave her some Bonjela first it might help - but would that interfere with her feeding at all?

the baby bonjela that i have for dd numbs the gums so i always put it on after milk.

I didnt breast feed but I found when ds was teething he wouldnt suck at all on his bottle. If I gave him bonjela a few minuts before the feed he would get wired in

I always give after, apparently hard for them to suck if numb
