Smoking and breastfeeding
by: Zelda Behr

Firstly I would advise to quite smoking, but if its really difficult here are some guidelines...

It is better to breastfeed and smoke than formula feed and smoke as breast milk protects against respiratory problems.

-Smoke after a feed it takes 95min for the harmful chemicals to work out of your body.

-Don't smoke close to your baby as secondhand smoke is very dangerous.

-Try smoking less and no more than 20 per day.
