Stay away from it while you're nursing. The active chemical in weed gets passed through your breastmilk and your baby consumes it. A newborn baby is much more susceptible to illness than adults, they process things at a much slower rate than we do. It also alters a newborns brain development and would cause them to learn at a slower rate.

Yes, it is bad to do while BF'ing, rule of thumb is whatever you shouldn't do while pregnant, you shouldn't do while BF'ing.
