@KayKaysMommy I completely agree that smoking when you have children is a form of neglect. It drives me insane to see parents smoking around their children, especially when they are in the car. I had to do a ton of research on the effects of second hand smoke when I lived in CA and our downstairs neighbors were chain smokers. We literally could not open our windows without smoke pouring in. Unfortunately, there wasn't much we could legally since there was no city ordniance regarding smoking. But I learned all about just how harmful it is to developing children and it's shocking that more people aren't educated about these effects. And for mothers who quit during pregnancy but start up again, I don't have words to express just how baffling that is to me! If you can quit for 9 months there's no reason to go back.As far as hookah is concerned, some studies have shown it is actually more harmful than cigarettes. People think the water draws out the toxins from the tobacco, but that just isn't true. Water isn't a filter and all the carcinogens and chemicals still go into your system. Those harmful toxins will get into breastmilk and will be transmitted to a baby. Breastmilk is only healthy if you are eating a healthy, balanced diet. If a mother is ingesting toxic materials, consuming too much sugar or caffeine, consuming alcohol, it will all get into the breastmilk.
