Hi ladies ~ I would like to join in ~ have recently started enjoying some (homegrown!) green with my long-standing herb-loving DH. Am a recovering victim of the MJ smear campaign, but educated myself about it and am opening my mind I have a 6.5 mo old DD and started trying it out when she was around 5 mo old or so. As for BF, haven't seen any adverse effects, though I do "pump and dump" when I'm enjoying myself just to have some extra peace of mind, and I've struggled with supply issues since early on so like another pp, she doesn't get much milk anyway.

So glad to see this tribe! I'm realizing it really is like some sort of underground society...and more people partake than I ever thought!

Welcome kudzuqueen.... now you've got me wondering...

how many of you mamas pump and dump? i've been kind of tempted to, but never did.: is that a bad thing?
post #244 of 384
I've never pumped and dumped
post #245 of 384
As a milk recipient for my babe, I am saddened to hear there is milk going down a drain.
post #246 of 384
never pumped and dumped either. from what I understand, it wouldnt work anyhow. The pieces of THC that remain in your system are fat soluble, and dont circulate like other substances.
post #247 of 384
No pump and dump here either. I've always felt quite comfortable.

Pump and dump...

I had to pump & dump only because I worked for a short time after DS was born. But after I quit working, I never picked up the pump again. He's 8 now and perfectly ok... Just my experience, though.:

No pump and dump either. THC doesn't really work like say... alcohol. Like sg784 mentioned, THC is fat soluble so it takes longer to go through the system. Alcohol on the other hand is water soluble so you *could* pump and dump for that but, once the alcohol levels in your blood are out, they are also out of your milk (no need to pump and dump before the next feed). Does that make sense?

I have only pumped when out drinking because I was missing a feed and my breasts were getting ginormeous. (I of course had my son with a responsible babysitter for the weekend and had plenty of good breastmilk for him)

Yes, on the lookout LJ

Hi all, been subbing for awhile. Some of you ladies are giving me hope, DS is 22 months and I have been abstaining the whole time because of worries of him getting THC. DH still partakes (outside only no smoke in the house with DS), and makes me miss it a lot. So I'm thinking a little tiny bit won't hurt him . I'm also jealous I can't come to the party, I live in Kansas, nowhere near anyone else .

Just giving a chime-in... I DID experience the drop in supply with this herb. But the benefits (no OCD stealing my time and self-worth, just Facebook now! outweighed the risks, so I just balanced it out with fenugreek. Also I had supply issues from anemia, so once I started taking iron regularly that helped and calcium so my teeth wouldn't dissolve out of my head! DS is 1yo yesterday and I pretty much take it every day. The first 6 mos I only took it like three days a week. I think I didn't start taking it until he was like a month or two old. Also too, though, I remember a friend told me that her boobs didn't fill up as much with the second one as they did with her first, so maybe the supply thing was in my head? I always question, but still I take the fenugreek every day. Haven't tried the blessed thistle yet.

i'm happy to hear no one else does, and i did think p&d would be pointless... hence i guess that's why i never did.

wow thanks ladies ~ maybe i'll drop the p&d after all (and for those of you saddened by my milk going down the drain - i actually have really low supply too so we're talking like 1.5 oz here my supply has actually gotten worse lately - like 8 oz over 7 pumps - and while I don't think it's the MJ, who knows, you know? i take more milk special and shatavari daily to try and boost it, but haven't seen much of an effect.

have you tried dpd?
post #259 of 384
Just had to pop in to say : first time i've had any herb in months, so i had to say hi. And, coincidentally, the board looks completely different.
So tell me, trustworthy ladies, it's not just me right? Things are different around here? Or is it just my computer?
