I'm sure many other learned moms can give you links for actual time periods, but it's not the scan itself that poses the biggest concern, it's the iv contrast dye that can cross over to the bm.
Can they do a non-contrast CT scan? You may want to find out.

I agree with pp--maybe you could find out if they could use an alternate contrast, esp. since your dc is so young and not acclimated to a possible bottle, cup, etc.
I am needing a CAT scan done and am told that i have to wait 24 hours afterward to breastfeed. I have a 2 month old that I am breastfeeding and DO NOT want to give him a bottle. we had to give him a bottle a few days after he was born and he did not want to nurse for a couple days after that... and i definitely don't want to go through that again. Any suggestions out there? Does anyone know if it is really necessary to wait 24 hours to breastfeed?
If you don't want to try it, I think I would be more inclined to make the baby wait 24 hours to eat than to give him milk with harmful stuff in it. I know it sounds horrifying to have to go 24 hours without eating, but those chemicals are really scary.
