  • drink lots of water... it varies more on how much you eat! Also, Cranberry juice flushes the system while taking cranberry pills! Usually, we figure one bowl takes 3 days to get out of your system unless you do a body cleaner but that's HELL (everything drains out of you!)... as far as breastfeeding, I have no idea.

  • Milk thistle and burdock will cleanse your liver and kidneys and yeah drink lots of water 3-4 days...I wouldn't think it would be wise to breastfeed, no.

  • if you switch to formula for a few days (because if you ate a lot of brownies then it WILL show in your milk) make sure you pump your milk as often as you can. THC apparently decreases milk production and you don't want to contribute to that.

  • I would switch to formula for a few days just to be safe. I'm not sure how long it takes to leave your system.

  • hmmm. i wonder though if THC is worse then formula. ...a little bit of internet searching of everything that is in most formula's and how those effect the baby might be helpful.

  • I've been searching and haven't found any negative effects of pot and infants... the worst I've found is schitzophrenia at age 12 from mothers who smoked pot heavily all the time. Just drink a lot of water and cranberry juice, it will be out of your system soon!

  • Pot stays in your body for up to 30 days!!! And pot has the same affects as alcohol on a baby. Pump and dump for atleast a couple of days and stay away from the special brownies until you aren't bf anymore.

  • pot only stays in your system for 30 days if you are a regular smoker. if you don't use it regularly it should be out of your system in 3-5 days. ...maybe even 1 day.
