On June 7th I'm scheduled for a CAT Scan. They will be giving me an IV full of this Contrast stuff and I will not be able to nurse my 9 month old for 48 HOURS! Ladies, I am freaking out. I so cherish my nursing relationship with my daughter and I am so afraid of doing damage to it by denying her the breast for 2 days straight. Most of the advice I've been receiving has been to just wean her now.or at least wean her right before the scan and hope she'll return to nursing after a break for a few days.
I don't WANT to wean her! Like I said, we both so enjoy our nursing relationship and I had planned AT THE VERY LEAST to nurse her for a full year.
Do you know anyone who has gone through something like this? What can I do? How will we both survive those 48 hours not nursing?? I'm feeling devastated...
