    Same as Kaybaby: no smoking at our place. I used to smoke a pack a day for 16 years. I held my nieces while smoking and didn't understand why my bro was upset. I know better now. I quit before my wife got pregnant. Our guests have to smoke on the street. Several thought we were joking when we first told them. Some haven't returned.
    I close the windows when the neighbours smoke wafts over.
    On the street I take my kids away from people smoking. I've never asked someone to wash their hands etc though. Our ex-nanny smokes. She smelt like she had one just before she got to work most days. She didn't smoke during the day at all though. I guess I didn't think that was that harmful.

    I can't see the bad here if she isn't prepared to respect your wishes. But it's easy for me to say cause she's not in my family

    Thankfully none of our family nor close friends smoke. No smoker will be touching my baby though. There is bad asthma and bronchitis in our family so I figure I don't need to expose DD to smoke.

    Im with all of you. I would much prefer no smoker holds my baby just after having a ciggie.

    I must also add though, that as a woman who wears no make up or perfume, I actually feel the same way about women or men who wreak of perfume or aftershave. Even the makeup. I have often seen Ds and DD faces glittery after being held by a family friend with foundation or blush on. And the smell of perfume wreaks all over DD's clothes. I dont want my kids exposed to those harmful chemical either.
