My dd is 2 weeks old. I'm bfing also. I went to the dentist 2 days ago to get some fillings done. Well, my gums have been sore and bleeding. Last night while sleeping I probably swallowed some blood. Could this affect my baby?

I don't think it would bc your milk is filtered. i wouldnt worry about it at all :)

No you are fine... the LLL says its even fine if your your nipples are cracked and bleeding and your baby ingests some of the blood.. Don't worry at all. BY you ingesting blood she isn't going to get it and if she did it wouldn't hurt her anyway..

She is going to be just fine...the blood got digested in your stomache and broken down into nutrients and waste just like everything else and then the nutrients are carried by your blood to your b___sts where milk develops and draws them out of your blood supply, while the waste goes the opposite way :)
