My three year old still breastfeeds: Can I smoke ciggarettes?

My baby is almost three years old, he still breastfeeds. I’m trying to make him quit slowly. Is it alright for me to occasionally have a plain cigarette? Will it harm the baby? He eats normal food and stuff takes the bottle too.

Bottle? Should be on sippy cups and water or milk.

If smoking is deadly to you, and hazardous to a breastfeeding infant, why would it not be harmful to a 3 year old??? :woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming:

Use this opportunity of not smoking for 3+ years to not start up again!

Yes… They recommend waiting 3 to 4 hours after you smoke to feed

I’d say time to wean him off the breast and a good time to give up cigarettes too!:grin:

Should have been using the sippy cup at the age of 2 then you wouldn’t have to ask this question.

Ask your doctor. You’ll just get judgements here.

You must wean your child ASAP. Once that is taken care of, then you can think of smoking.

Ditch the tit… you want him in school still sucking off the tit… kids should be introduced a cup by this time…however to each there own your the parent

You can always still put and put it in a cup to help wean him off a lil. But as long as you don’t smoke more than a few cigs a day you are fine. The concern with smoking is colic and decrease in milk supply.

3 years old definitely shouldn’t be sucking from a tit anymore :laughing:

Maybe he’s trying to wean you from cigarettes… just putting a different spin on things!

This is an odd question. Have you been smoking or did you just pick up the habit today. Why risk your health and your child’s health.
