I'm cracking up at this
MJ is fine to smoke while breastfeeding. Certainly no more harmful than the handful of (prescription) pharma drugs I have taken while in my bfing dyad.
I didn't vote, I haven't smoked weed in years but I am still an advocate. My midwife reccomended it to me while I was pregnant for my headaches. My mom smoke while in labour with me, to ease the contractions. It not. a. big. deal.
CPS here in NZ would NEVER take a child away for their parent possessing pot. Never.
Another point, belladonna is in as PP pointed out, is in Hylands teething powder as well as a whole range of other homeopathics, including ones I took while in labour with my babe.
Also, I though Benadryl was contraindicated for pg and bfing.
And if you take enough Tylenol you can lose your liver and have to have a transplant. I have never heard of that happening with MJ.
