- Work as a team! Help diaper and feed your baby when you can.
- Take baby for a walk while your partner gets some rest.
- Stay healthy for your and baby's sake. If you smoke, quit.
No. Secondhand smoke isn't good for your baby. Children, especially babies, exposed to secondhand smoke are at increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), ear infections, colds, pneumonia, bronchitis, severe asthma, headaches, sore throats, dizziness, nausea, lack of energy and fussiness. You can protect your baby from all these things by keeping the cigarettes out of the house! Remember everything you did during pregnancy to help keep your partner and your baby healthy? Keep doing them now that your baby's here! If you or your partner smoke, quit. If you need help to quit, tell your health care provider.
