So this morning I went to the hospital to have a CT scan done as ordered by my doctor. They went through the routine questions with me and asked when my last menstraul cycle was. I said 01/28/08 and explained that I am still nursing my 9 month old which would explain the lack of periods. They said ok and gave me an IV with contrast for the CT scan. After it was complete, they told me that I CAN'T BREASTFEED MY DAUGHTER for at least 12 hours!!!!! The woman looked at me and said, well you have milk stored don't you??? NO!! My daughter has never had to take a bottle in her life. We soley breastfeed. Now for the next twelve hours, they say I have to pump and dump and give her formula! I am so frustrated and my husband is furious!!! I specifically told my doctor that I wanted no tests done that would interfere with breastfeeding!! Now I'm stuck for the day because no one told me I couldn't breastfeed until the test was over!
