Breastmilk is considered a clear fluid and can be given up to 4hrs before a surgery. What did they say about clear fluids?

Did they state not even clear liquid? I know bm is considered clear liquid and can be consumed 4 hours or less before most procedures

Acording to the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, the guidelines for pre operative fasting for breastfeeding infants is that they can breastfeed up to 4 hrs before anesthesia. Check the protocols (print and discuss with doc as needed) here:

My dd had eye surgery at the Cleveland Clinic and they go by the "breastmilk up to 4 hrs before surgery start time". Her surgery was scheduled for 8am and I was able to nurse her to 4am.
