DS had surgery a month or so ago that required general anesthesia and he was allowed to nurse up to 2 hours before his surgery. Breastmilk is considered a clear liquid not milk in the terms of surgery. Talk to the dentist. Versed does NOT sedate you. It is like taking extra stregth Valium. I have had Versed several times. It makes you feel loopy and forget what has gone on but does NOT sedate you. Two of my boys have had it as well and they were wide awake while on it. They just looked and acted stoned. I didn't know how to explain it any other way.
