i smoked while breastfeeding and all 3 of my kids are fine. I was actually told by the hospital it is better to smoke and breastfeed than to smoke and bottle feed lol i was like woohoooo

I did with all 3 of mine and they are fine. Any problems that they got weren't from that it came from genetics

My daughter was extremely small unil I stopped breastfeeding. I would usually make sure my smoke was at least half an hour before she was due, didn't want to jinx it. But my greatest advice is to quit. I went cold turkey on news day and haven't touched a smoke since then I know it's annoying when people say you should quit when they smoked but you feel so much better. Really...
