Is it safe to use GNC ultra nourish hair vitamins while nursing ?

Cannibinoids stay positive in blood up to a year. Since this is the blood feeding the hair, won't the hair continue to be positive as it grows?

Not true- 2 weeks!: I don't know what makes you think cannabinoids stay positive in blood up to a year- they tend to stay positive for 2-3 days after use, though up to 2 weeks in frequent/heavy users. Hair tests can be positive for about 90 days after use. See http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/cannabis_drug_testing. ...Read more

Should be seen: You are not describing normal stool for either a formula fed or breast fed baby. Most solid foods at this point would still be in puree form so that would not explain either.

Would dying my hair affect me breast feeding my baby ?

Would dying my hair affect me breast feeding my baby ?

Possibly: Research is lacking but most hair dyes contain very toxic chemicals like para-phenylenediamine that are absorbed through the skin & might get into breast milk. I would not risk exposing my baby to such poisons. Consider natural non-toxic alternatives to synthetic dyes.
