CT Scan dye and BF

Has anyone had a scan with the dye and BF'd after? The nurse said it was fine but if I felt uncomfortable to just pump and dump the first feed post test. Her casualness (if that's a word) about it sorta concerned me. Just curious what others have experienced. Figured I'd ask while I'm doing research. It was thrown at me while I was at the hospital so I didn't get to prepare.

  • Can you call a lactation specialist or Obgyn? Sorry you had to have the test, hope all is okay.

    I just found this.  I think it is a reliable source. Just didn't like being caught unprepared and the response from the nurse didn't make me feel confident. Andplusalso, it's always nice to hear others' experience.

  • glad you were able to find some sources to give you guidance and really sorry they did not give you a heads up before hand to prepare.  Hope you are okay!

  • Also a lurker from F'14. I had a CT scan when my baby was 2 weeks old, same thing it was very casual oh maybe you should pump and dump maybe not...I called LO's pedi and he said because he was so young to pump and dump for 12 hours. I think it might be different now that the babies are a little older but I listened to that a the time. I didn't have a supply built up back then so LO had formula and I pumped. Hope all is ok!
