  • I would say to pump at least twice before breastfeeding.

  • you know there are hotlines in the yellow pages... I would call one of 'em ...just to ask anonymously. Because you want to make sure and don't need criticism. Just what is best for baby. Pregnancy can be an emotional roller coaster.

  • I would wait at least 24 hours. It's a drug, it will take some time to leave your system.

  • Wow you are brave..You posted without the anonymous button. I think you need to pump for about 3 days maybe? I don't know really lol...But I heard weed is less dangerous than cigarettes (I heard) It stays in your system longer though. I think you will be fine just DON'T do it again.
    MAybe you can google it and find out...I'm sure there is an answer on the internet.

  • I agree with the PP that said its got less harmful/synthetic chemicals than a cigarette, so think of all the mothers that have a smoke and then go right to nursing their babies. I would probably follow the same rules as with alcohol.

  • no more damage than smoking a cig honestly...and it takes 30 days to leave your system...just keep nursing. The only bad effect on babies is sleepiness.
