In brief: Essentially the same
Cigar or cigarette smoke promote the same increase in respiratory disease/ear infections, etc.
Other odor producing agents like cleaning materials are irritating but have less residual effect on baby over time. Perfume/carpet cleaner/candles/wood stoves or fire places have variable effect.
