I'm almost to my due date and I recently had a conversation with my mother about her smoking. I had to tell her that she's not allowed to be anywhere near me or the baby while smoking. I also asked her to cut back (because she smokes a cigarette every half an hour) and told her she will need to wash her hands and change her shirt after smoking if she wants to hold my baby.
She took it really badly and now she's not speaking to me. She said I hurt her and that I'm putting stipulations on her seeing my baby.
I haven't done anything wrong right? It's my right to tell her what I expect concerning my own child. She's being very selfish and childish and I don't really know what to tell her.
The whole reason I had to have that conversation with her is because last week I was in the car with her and she lit a cigarette! I was blown away that she would even think to do that with me in the car...

However, the hand washing and changing of the shirt is a little much.
Umm, no it is not. She doesn't want her baby to smell like an ashtray. She certainly doesn't want nasty nicotine hands on her baby. My husband smokes and I told him he couldn't hold his own children if he smelled like smoke clothes, hands or breath.
