A healthy baby is a happy baby. That means you can get more sleep, more time to spend with your partner, and more time for yourself.

New moms often are surprised to learn that their smoking can affect their baby’s health and behavior.

Babies and children whose parents are smokefree tend to have fewer:

  • Chest colds and coughs, bronchitis, and pneumonia

  • Breathing problems

  • Ear infections

  • Less frequent and milder asthma (among children who have asthma)

Babies born to moms who smoke during or after pregnancy are 2-3 times more likely to die from SIDS than babies of non-smoking moms.

Forever Free for Baby and Me offers practical tips to help you stay smokefree and make life happier and healthier for you, your baby, and your family.
