When You Quit Smoking

When you quit smoking:

  • Your baby will get more oxygen that helps your baby grow.
  • Both you and your baby will likely have fewer colds.
  • Your baby will be less likely to have asthma, allergies and other lung problems.
  • Your baby will be less likely to suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  • Your breast milk will be healthier for your baby.
  • Reduce the chances that your baby will miscarry.
  • Reduce the chance that your baby will be born too early, before the lungs and other organs are fully formed.
  • Avoid having your baby go through nicotine withdrawal at birth.
  • Decrease your baby’s risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS or crib death)
  • Save money to buy more things for your baby – and yourself.
