  • um... NO! why would you want to pollute your baby? if your that hard up that you have to smoke pot why even breastfeed? just give your baby formula so they at least have some chance at a future without suffering the harmful effects of their mothers poor choices...

  • Seeing as everything you ingest/inhale is passed on to the baby, No. I personally refuse to take anything worse than tylenol while breastfeeding. So vicodin is out of the question also.

  • AITCH NO!! anyone who does deserves to have their children taken away...sorry to say, but it's true.

    Vicodin/lortab/motrin is prescribed in the right dosage by your doctor to be safe for nursing-smoking pot isn't. Plus you should get off of pain meds as soon as possible. I see in no way a justification of smoking pot while nursing- or even if you have children for that matter!!!

  • I've never breastfed but from what I heard anything that goes in your body the baby will take in as well.

  • Btw, I am not against marijuana (I do not use), but I just think you shouldn't use it when it could affect your child (pregnant, breastfeeding, around your kids, while caring for your kids).
