Secondhand smoke is extremely dangerous for babies. Among other things, it weakens their lungs, makes them more prone to ear infections, and doubles the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

Smokers spread contaminants wherever they go – pollutants seep out of their clothes, skin, hair, and breath. So before getting close to a baby, smokers should wear clean clothes (that they haven't worn while smoking), wash their hands and face (especially after smoking), and never let the baby suck on their fingers.
