Is smoking dangerous while breastfeeding?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 08/09/2018

Smoking during breastfeeding is generally not recommended. Numerous studies indicate that nicotine from tobacco passes into the mother's blood, although not in a concentration that may be toxic to the newborn.

In any case, the quality of the milk and the health of the baby will be better if the mother reduces or avoids harmful substances such as tobacco, alcohol and other drugs.
