Not at all: The drug will pass to baby in the BM.The baby will also be exposed to the risks of smoking whether you do it in front of baby or not.These include higher risk of respiratory disease, crib death and others.In my state when the kid tested positive you would go to jail for child endangerment and the kid would go to foster care.
