Mom Shares FB Photo Of Her Smoking Weed While Breastfeeding, Internet Explodes
And here we have the trash bag of the week.
There are a lot of great moms out there. But then of course there are a lot of crappy moms as well. And this article here will focus on the latter. And who has the spotlight? An Oregon mom named Kayla Marlow who thought it would be a brilliant move to breastfeed her baby all while smoking from a bong. Oh, and she shared a photo of it as well on Facebook.
Marlow shared the controversial photo on the Facebook page of a cannabis parenting support group called CannaParentingSupport.V.420. Because there is such a thing it seems. Let’s first take a look at the caption that Marlow decided to put on this photo.
And now the photo that has everyone buzzing.
Pretty disturbing if you ask me. But what’s even more disturbing is that some of the feedback was actually positive. Just take a look at these comments.
Holy hell. But of course there were more people on Facebook that didn’t agree with this at all and went pretty damn hard on Marlow.
And if you’re thinking of how harmful to a baby this can be, well let’s just say that it is not a thing you want to do at all.

If present in the room while someone smokes marijuana, the child can also inhale the smoke, which can give them a contact high. Studies have also suggested that inhaling secondhand marijuana smoke can damage a person’s heart and blood vessels.
A baby can also ingest THC through its mother’s breast milk. Though insufficient studies have been completed on the effects of marijuana through breastfeeding, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists discourages mothers from smoking and breastfeeding.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment also discourages the practice, writing in a guide: ‘THC in marijuana gets into breast milk and may affect your baby. Because THC is stored in body fat, it stays in your body for a long time. A baby’s brain and body are made with a lot of fat.
‘Since your baby’s brain and body may store THC for a long time, you should not use marijuana while you are pregnant or breastfeeding.’
The American Academy of Pediatrics also agrees that breastfeeding mothers should not use marijuana.
So pretty much everyone agrees that this is a dumb thing to do. So it should go without saying, folks, but smoke weed by yourself while you contemplate your life’s decision instead of smoking weed while your baby is latched on to you.
