Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Cocaine is a powerful and highly addictive stimulant that is easily absorbed into the blood stream. It has a high milk to plasma ratio, meaning it a significant amount of the drug may pass from a mother’s blood into breast milk .
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, cocaine should not be used by breastfeeding mothers. Mothers who choose to breastfeed and who use cocaine intermittently should delay breastfeeding for at least 24 hours after use.
So you will need to wait till then.

No actually it isnt the milk its the time body takes to metabolize cocaine. So atleast 24 hrs. Then you feed the baby ,no need to pump it out. Cocaine will be excreted through urine
