In brief: Some effect
Smokers carry the odors and chemicals in their hair, breath and clothes.
Even if they smoke outside, it is noticeable for the sensitive child. It is much worse for the infant or toddler who generally need to be held, they are still somewhat exposed. The asthmatic child or those prone to chronic respiratory infections usually allergy triggered; a common respiratory irritant is smoke.
