Smoking around your baby

A baby subjected to passive smoking has an increased risk of developing allergy-related diseases, respiratory diseases, infections in the middle ear, colic and cot death (SIDS).

If you smoke, your baby will become a passive smoker This is how passive smoking affects your baby:
• Studies have shown that, in homes where the parents smoke, a quarter of the children aged between 0 and 18 months old get bronchitis and a third of them will eventually develop asthma
• The children have an increased risk of developing allergy-related diseases
• Children under four are more likely to get inflammation of the middle ear and will be more susceptible to ear and throat infections
• Smoke can also give babies tummy ache and colic
• Children exposed to nicotine may become more restless and cry a lot
• The risk of cot death is two to three times higher if the baby is subjected to secondary smoking The baby's bedroom must absolutely be a totally smoke-free area

Draw up a "smoking policy" which says, for example, that people must only smoke outside or under the extractor fan, and tell your guests about it

It’s hard to quit smoking; that’s been proved again and again Do you have any tips?
