  • no it is not ok. If you eat to many then it is like you are doing the drug and that is going straight to your breast milk

  • Actually you would have to eat more poppy seeds than thos that are in normal poppyseed foods to ever et high. There are no warnings against eating poppyseed foods wile pregnant. If you still aren't sure then ask your OB or midiwfe

  • Do you mean Poppy? As in poppy seed muffins? or Cake? that's fine to eat. Unless your consuming dozen's of muffins or 3 whole cakes a day.
