Husband smoking?: If your husband is smoking around your baby, this is a concern. I don't believe the odor alone is injurious, but i'd like to hear what my colleagues say. The bottom line here is that if your husband is smoking, get him to quit. A premature death due to a preventable cause is the biggest negative impact that smoking has on kids. I know from personal experience. Lgromkomd.
