  • You smoke while you are breastfeeding? Or you smoke and you happen to breastfeed?
    Either way, you get high, introduce chemicals to your baby, get the munchies, probably a little anxious or relaxed, and your child gets high too.
    What a great question. It shows what kinds of different, interesting? and unique?? individuals we have on here.

  • Weed is much safer than anything else out there. A completely natural plant that you just smoke! They have many studies where women smoked while pregnant and the babies were no different than mothers who didn't. Weed is much safer than alcohol and cigs, there are known complications with those drugs while test after test of smoking pot have not come out with the same information. From my research, the worst outcome is schitzophrenia when they are in their teens and that was after years of studies. Mothers smoked it long before it became illegal, and just as long as breastfeeding itself has been around, or at least since 1212 BC anyways. You're baby will be fine!
    I guess just try not to smoke around her because it is still smoke...

  • "the worst outcome is schitzophrenia when they are in their teens"

    - besides that being spelled incorrectly (schizophrenia), you're acting like that's no big deal - your kids will be fine?!?

    To the OP - I haven't done any research, so I don't know the actual affects but you should definitely check with a dr. They don't even recommend you take much Tylenol - I can't imagine it would be okay for you to smoke pot. That would be introducing chemicals into your baby that aren't even deemed safe for adults to use. Imagine if your baby gets addicted to pot, then what will you do when you have a drug addict for a 2 year old - can you imagine the withdrawal? If you feel like you HAVE to smoke pot, then please just feed your baby formula!!! Breastmilk laced with pot would NOT be better than formula.

  • Yes, actually, missanc, it IS better to smoke marijuana and breastfeed than to formula feed.
