    I have this problem with my mum & step dad, apart from they make no effort to smoke outside or away from Lewis.........it's so difficult to say anything as you don't want to offend them in their own home, so we just don't go round........:cry:

    Unless you never want to go round again, you've got to say something. Good luck:hugs:

    You have to say something, or get your OH to.....
    My OH's mother smokes like a chimney too and I think given half the chance she would smoke around Daisy, she doesn't seem to think there is anything wrong with it:trouble:

    She went in the huff because OH made her go outside of OUR house and smoke (none of us smoke!) :hissy:

    This is unacceptable - especially as she is a nurse !!:hissy:
    Whenever we take Jack to my PIL's , FIL, BIL & DH always smoke outside, even when we take Jack to our friends house they always go outside of their own home to smoke!!!

    Second Hand smoke IS worse! With second hand smoke you are basically breathing in all the worst chemicals in the cigs that dont get inhaled by the smoker!
    I would say something. I bitch all the time to OH because I've caught his mother smoking around our LO (inside the house period) numerous times. But when he is here, SHE WONT DO IT!! :hissy: :grr: It pisses me off.
    She wouldn't quit smoking in the house before and Colton got BRONCHITIS! So we moved out, but she told OH she would quit smoking in the house and talked him into moving back. Now she smokes in the house when he isn't here, even though LO is!!

    I'd def say something! My brother smokes, and every time he is around and smokes, he is outside with the doors shut, and washes his hands every time he comes back in.

    Not only is second hand smoke bad for babies lungs (as with all of our lungs!) I believe it has also been linked to an increased risk of SIDS. Hes your baby hun, I think she would probably rather have you tell her, than stop bringing LO around. :hugs: Hope you get it sorted, thats a tough situation!

    Well i mentioned it to my OH and he just kinda said "urgh thats awful" :hissy: he smokes him self but he NEVER smokes around Charlie he goes out side he always washes his hands and he doesnt pick him up straight away, He told me to tell her but like some of you i feel quite awkward i was kinda expecting him to say somthing, i dont think shes stupid enough to smoke around him but i do think he'll have been him the livingroom while she puffed away in the kitchen the fact that his clothes smell obviously means its got in to his little lungs too, how do you say "have you been smoking around my baby" without offending somone!?
