Pump and dump: If anyone believes that their breast milk has been tainted by a substance/drug/alcohol, the best advice is to pump the milk and throw it out. This will allow continued production of milk. If no more smoking occurs and this was a one-time mistake, it should clear the body in 24 hours. Good luck on staying clean for you and your baby!
