Ok, it's been many years since I've smoked weed, since my teenage days before having my beauitful boys. I know this girl who is planning on breastfeeding...USUALLY, I'm very supportive, of course. But in this case, I don't think it's a good idea. She doesn't do any heavy drugs as far as I know, but she smokes marijuana multiple times a day and drinks (her due date is 4 days before mine...shes going to pop any day now). From what I understand, smoking weed is bad when breastfeeding...and I know drinking, you have to plan ahead and pump before hand and what not. I did ask her if she was going to stop smoking the weed, and she said...and I quote "for what? it's not gonna hurt her any." If she breastfeeds and puts that shit in that baby's system...I wouldn't hesitate to report her to child services. Am I wrong on this? I'm assuming that it would be transfered to the baby and if the baby was tested, I would think it would come up positive?
I just don't think it's right if you drink and smoke weed to breastfeed because I would think it'd be harmful to the baby....thoughts, opinions...advice?? What can it do to the baby if she BFs while drinking/smoking weed??
