    Breastfeeding after a CT scan
    PinkDarling posted:
    My friend is in the hospital with gall stones, they are telling her that not only can she not breastfeed her 7 week old son, but that she can't even HOLD him.
    I admin a BF support page on FB and have done quite a bit of research on this "pump and dump" myth.
    There is no reason she can't BF. But they are telling her that she can't because of having the CT scan with iodine. She is very upset.
    They said they will not look at any research and facts on it unless it's from WebMD!
    So can someone PLEASE link me to something from here that says they're full of it?
    She has extreme anxiety from losing her 19 day old daughter to SIDS a couple yrs ago, and them not letting her BF or even hold her son is about to push her over the edge.
