I currently do not smoke or drink. I quit the day I found out I was pregnant, and I have no intention of going back to smoking in general once baby is born (Due Jan 20th!) <3
However, if I were to have one night out after baby was born, in which I would be drinking, I know there is a possibility that I MAY have a smoke or 2, even though at this point I plan not to.
So I know that with drinking, I have to wait a certain amount of time before breastfeeding, and I plan to have enough expressed milk stored to last until I can BF again and also plan to pump and dump every so often throughout the night / next day to keep my supply up and also to get rid of the bad stuff that may be stored in there (though I've heard pumping and dumping doesn't make much difference anyways)
I have no idea about smoking though. IF I were to end up having a smoke or 2 throughout the night, how long should I wait before I start BF again? Would it be the same as alcohol or would it be much longer?
Please don't judge me I do not have plans to smoke, I intend to avoid it, and I don't plan on drinking all the time, this will be a one off thing for a long time for a special occasion, but am wanting to be informed in case it does arise that I happen to have one or two while drinking. I hope I don't! But you never know, and I just want to make sure I know what to do if it does happen.
Thanks in advance
