Do you feel that just the odor of smoke on someones clothing is harmful to a newborn? I personally dont but wonder how you feel and why you feel that way. TIA!
There is particulate matter in cigarette smoke which is why it leaves a residue on anything it comes into contact with. The residue contains the same carcinogens as the smoke. The odds of a healthy child getting sick just by touching a smoker are very low but a baby with an already compromised immune system and / or severe allergies is a different story altogether and I would not allow that child to be around a smoker. (I smoked for over 15 years and couldn't quit until the day I found out I was pregnant. I haven't smoked once since.)
