Would you have an amalgamin (sp) filling whilst breastfeeding?

Free on NHS or pay £80 for a white one.
Thank you.

I'd do it between feeds, ideally.

Seriously, yes. Unless you're going to have an entire mouth-full of fillings done, and you have huge cavities, the traces of mercury are so small as to really not be worth worrying about. It'd have to work its way into your system first (and if that bad, we wouldn't be having them in the first place), and then into your breastmilk. Risk is very remote.

On the other hand, I've paid for the white ones for purely aesthetic reasons. Justified it on the basis that I spend that much money on clothes/shoes that I don't wear 24/7, for years on end so why not spend the same on fillings I will have visible 24/7 for years and years...

Never. I wouldn't want mercury in my mouth or breastmilk and would always cough up for the white filling.
