    Check the information in Smoking Weed While Breastfeeding. In particular scroll down to “What about occasional marijuana and breastfeeding?” and see the recommendations from the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine and Dr Jack Newman (excerpts below):

     

    EXCERPT FROM
    Guidelines for Breastfeeding and Substance Use or Substance Use Disorder, ABM Clinical Protocol #21, 2015

    Counsel mothers who admit to occasional or rare use to avoid further use or reduce their use as much as possible while breastfeeding, advise them as to its possible long-term neurobehavioral effects, and instruct them to avoid direct exposure of the infant to marijuana and its smoke.

    EXCERPT FROM
    Dr. Jack Newman’s Guide to Breastfeeding , Jack Newman & Teresa Pitman, 2014

    If a mother is using marijuana occasionally, and is capable of taking good care of the baby, there is no reason to advise formula. There is no evidence that the small amounts present in the milk will harm the baby.
