In brief: Do not smoke

Smoke exposure in children causes a 2-fold increase in respiratory infections (ear infections, sinus infections, colds, bronchitis, and pneumonia).
So, the best measure is for no family members to smoke. Short of that, you should never smoke in the home or car and wear a jacket when smoking that you take off when entering the house. Talk with you doctor about proven ways to help stop smoking.
