Quit now: Your best bet to avoid heartbreak is to stop now and stay off the radar of any child services/legal entanglements. The drug would show on a poop screen, which is what I test but not a urine test if you stop now. In my state they take baby if you are positive on either screen.Stay off and they won't have reason to test. ...Read more

Heavy drug use by one parent might get you into problems with the Child and family services anyway.They would notice the smell. ...Read more

Testing differences: When I test a baby I do so o n their 1st poo, which can retain any evidence of drug exposure for the preceding months. Mother doesn't have to be a smoker for 2nd hand smoke to turn baby positive. In my state, baby would go home in foster care and the next year or more would be a nightmare for everyone. ...Read more
