Doctors, nurses, and midwives often inform mothers to #pumpanddump their breast milk for 24 hours after receiving anesthesia to avoid passing medications to the infant. However, many studies have found that the use of general anesthesia and most commonly used medications for pain relief are in fact SAFE and should not interfere with breastfeeding because only minimal traces of the anesthetic are passed on through the breast milk.
Not sure, you can always confirm with #infantriskhotline to answer all of your questions. 🤱🏻💉😷
