Breastfeeding and Smoking Marijuana

I recently gave birth to a healthy 7.2lb baby boy. He is now 4 weeks old. I stopped smoking mj when i was 16 weeks pregnant and wasnt sure if i could continue while breastfeeding. Well the day i got home from the hospital i smoked. And i have been smoking since. It doesnt seem to have any effect on my milk supply or the baby. He very rarely fusses and when he does it's usually gas. He sleeps thru the night and wakes only 2 or 3 times to eat in the middle of the night. So smoking doesnt seem to effect him. Does anyone else breastfeed and smoke? Just looking for feedback and experiences.

Everything you consume,

the baby does as well. Besides the natural chemicals in pot, your pot may have been grown with chemicals (assuming it's not home grown organic). I'd also wonder if it would impair your ability to look after the baby. Just me, but I thought twice about anything I consumed, even a diet coke seemed to make my baby more edgy and hyper and esp. if it would make me kind of out of it. I'd try at the very least to restrict it, maybe to nighttime or something when there are less feeding times, but you should be aware that if you are doing this, you should not cosleep. Babies are very fragile and susceptible to so many things plus once they start rolling and putting things in their mouths, you have to be hyper vigilant.
