    Yes, DD had one 2 weeks ago, at 11 days old.
    I fed and burped first, then swaddled her.
    She slept through it- no sedation.

    ETA: It took 2hrs

    The play therapists are amazing! Like effing amazing. They play with them about putting in the masks and how it smells like chocolate. They also help the time pass. Natural to be crapping yourself, how stressful!

    I can't believe they are even questioning whether to sedate, honestly. How on earth do you expect a 5 year old to stay completely and utterly still for 45 minutes? They don't have to use a heavy anaesthetic, so they wake up very quickly and are alert again in no time. The MRI machine is a huge 'donut' (for want of a better word), and it is very noisy. Anyone who is claustrophobic is recommended to have sedation and at DD's hospital it seems to be standard to sedate littlies.

    I hope everything is ok with your little fella!?

    He is going to the Children's in Melbourne on Wednesday. That was the quickest they could get us in when our doctor contacted them today.
    I've had an MRI so found it odd that he wouldn't be sedated, it's a full on experience.
    DS was diagnosed recently with migraines but they are becoming very frequent very fast and he is getting a lot of random blurred vision.

    My DS had his there too. They are amazing! The anaesthetists were phenomenal but I'm biased because anaesthetists are my favourite people. He's in excellent hands OP!

    Yeah anaesthetists are so super friendly, hey. DD has had so many anaesthetics that I've chatted to heaps of them and they're all nice. Especially the paediatric ones.

    They're so amazing!!! Every single one we had with DS and my 2 c sections have all been incredible. I love them! They're the unsung heroes of the medical fraternity 🙌

    Just spoke to the MRI people again and we are going to try the scan with no sedation. Fingers crossed!

    Update
    DS had his MRI last week, he was bumped from an urgent case to emergency.
    He was amazing! The scan went for an hour and he didn't flinch once! He just lay back, watched a movie and did exactly what was asked of him. I was so proud of him.
    We get the results on Thursday.
