New parents often are surprised to learn that smoking affects their baby’s behavior as well. Being a smokefree mom can make your job as a mom much easier. This is because babies of smoking parents tend to have colic more often, cry more, be fussier, be harder to soothe or quiet, and have more problems sleeping than other babies. 

Babies who have parents that are smokefree are less likely to have the following problems:

  • Chest colds and coughs, such as bronchitis and pneumonia

  • Breathing problems

  • Ear infections

  • Allergies

  • Upset stomachs 

This means more sleep, a happier baby, more time with your partner, and more time for yourself. Check out Forever Free Baby and Me to help you quit smoking and make life happier and healthier for you, your baby, and your family.
