CT Scan Info Again??

Hey Ladies - I know someone posted a link to Dr. Hale's info on CT Scans and breastfeeding. I guess that post has been pruned out at this point Sad Can anyone post it again?? Dr. Hale's site is really confusing and I can't seem to find it on my own. I'm getting a CT Scan with contrast today and have about 6 - 8 bottles saved in my freezer. Just wondering how many I should use. Seems like different people have different opinions as to how long I should stop BFing, if at all.

Thanks for your help!! xoxoS

I don't have Dr. Hale's link, but I do know that Dr. Jack Newman says that it's completely safe:

Thanks Amber! I ended up waiting 12 hours to BF - I pumped and tossed during that time. Maybe not necessary but I figured better safe than sorry...
