Breastfeeding Moms Breastfeeding Moms

My baby will be put under GA for an MRI. Last time she was put under she couldn't have any food/nurse for 12 hours before but could have clear liquids like water (she got an IV for fluids that time). But I read somewhere bm is considered a clear liquid and can be consumed up until 3 hours before. Is this true? Where can I find this on LLL website or kelly mom? I want to take printed info to the hospital with me to avoid them arguing with me.

This says "The most current studies say that babies can safely breastfeed 4 hours prior to surgery. Breastfeeding may be safely resumed when your baby leaves the recovery room."

Sometimes it's discouraging and hard to find a surgery center that's up to date on this. When my one ds had an eye surgery the pre admission people told me no breastfeeding after midnight. I told them I was pretty sure that was inaccurate. They admitted they never had anyone ask before. They ended up calling our main campus of the Cleveland Clinic and called me back to say it was ok up to 4 hours before surgery start. When my youngest dd had an eye surgery a couple years ago they told me 3 or 4 hours before was ok, no debate necessary.

I'm getting all my ducks in a row before I go.  I am calling that hospital's IBCLC today just to see what her experience has been.  Last time I wasnt too worried because she was refusing to nurse anyway, but we are finally back to nursing well so I am not denying her her new found love.
