Can I still breast feed if I smoke cigeretts? How long should I wait to breast feed?

Don't smoke at all. The nicotine you crave will readily pass through the bm as it forms & on to baby when fed .The half life of nicotine in baby can exceed 18 hours, meaning it will build up & effect babies brain causing irritability & may interfere with growth. Even if bottle fed the smell on your hair will increase babies crib death risk, double or triple respiratory illnesses. You have a choice, baby needs one too.
