I'm getting a colonoscopy done tomorrow so I will go under anesthesia. My son is 2 yrs 4 months old and still breastfeeding. How long after anesthesia is it safe to breastfeed? Or should I pump and dump? Thank you ladies in advance!

When you are awake, alert, and have full use of your limbs, you're good to nurse. If the anesthesia didn't clear, you'd still be unconscious.

No need to pump and dump. As soon as you can hold him, you can nurse.
