Abstract
Your doctor or nurse practitioner has ordered a medical imaging test that requires you to have an injection of contrast media.
While it is possible that tiny amounts of contrast media can enter breast milk, we want you to know that it is safe to continue to breast feed your baby.
This document explains how much contrast your baby might receive in breast milk, how long each type of contrast takes to leave the body, and why it is a good idea to breastfeed as soon as you can after the imaging.
