Smoking can reduce how much breastmilk you make and put harmful substances in your breastmilk. But even if you smoke, breastfeeding is still best for your baby.
It’s never too late to quit. For example, one hour after you quit the risk of pregnancy complications goes down. Stop smoking for two days, and your baby’s growth is back on track.
