First off I am all for breastfeeding but this girl should not for the sake of her poor child. She is 7 months pregnant and still smokes and according to her fiance drinks. I've seen her smoking plenty of times but I haven't seen the alcohol. I fear for her child as it is but the last time I talked to her she told me she was thinking about breastfeeding! If she doesn't stop these things while she is pregnant I know she won't stopto breastfeed. I'm so worried this child is going to have something wrong with him. And every time I see her I picture him going through detox after he is born! I don't want to step on her toes but it seems to me formula would be the best bet for a healthy baby in her case. What do ya'll think?Answer Question

If the baby is going to be around her smoking after they are born, it would still be more healthy for the baby to have breastmilk than formula if they have to be around her smoking. It stinks if mama is drinking, but hopefully it is just hearsay and she isn't. If she only drinkysoccasionally after the baby is born and she is breastfeeding, it shouldn't affect the baby.
This is true.
