Smoking during pregnancy
Scientific research shows that smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of spontaneous abortion, low birth weight and sudden deaths and illnesses in babies.
Smoking and breastfeeding
Nicotine is given to the baby by breast milk. It takes about one and a half hours before one cigarette's nicotine has disappeared from the mother's body. Breast-feeding mothers who can not stop should at least try to reduce, and wait at least one and a half hours for breastfeeding.
Babies and inhalation of smoke
Prevent your baby from breathing in the smoke. Smokers' children have more frequent respiratory infections. In addition, breast milk contains additional protection against these infections. If you have to smoke, do it outside.
