if someone has had the experience of having your baby go through an MRI can you please post and answer I'm scares out of my mind our girl is 18 months old. the eye doctor prescribes it to rule out any serious problems in her left eye

Havana has several developmental delays her eye doctor tried to look for something serious with her lazy eye and her report was clear , the baby just has to wear eye path 2 hours daily... but he said lets rule out every thing all together and ordered and MRI I'm so scared of teh Anestassia and Havana only weighs 21 pounds.

  • My daughter was about 13 months when she had her MRI and she did fine. They just strapped her to the bed, so she would stay perfectly still and put her under. We left and went to the cafeteria while they did the MRI and then came back up and waited for her to wake up. She came out of it fine, and had no issues whatsoever. I wouldn't worry too much.

  • IF SHE GOES TO A CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL I WOULDN'T WORRY. THAT'S ALL THEY DO. USUALLY THE'LL SEDATE OR GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO CALM THEM DOWN AND THEY USUALLY HAVE T.V.'S IN THERE. aS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT PREGGO YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO STAY IN THERE WITH HER.

  • Make sure she goes to a Children's Hospital. My son went through one at about 9 months old for eye problems as well. Try not to worry, the baby will pick up on it. Both of you will be fine :0)
