I have to drink barium sulfate for a CT and will have an IV with something else in it, for a CT on my abdomen, will i be able to breast feed after ct?

In brief: Ok

Barium sulfate taken by mouth is not a problem. Iv contrast should not be a problem either; however there are many different IV contrast agents.
Ask the radiologist if the agent they are giving is considered safe for nursing mothers.
