Just looking for some reassurance that I'm not being unreasonable, or honest opinions if I am...
So we completed our parenting class today and the midwife ran through SIDS and what you can do to minimise the risk. One of the tips was to have any smoking family members shower and change clothes before handling bub because the cigarette smoke lingers on them afterwards and can be overpowering when bubby is held close to them.
This is our first and I'm only 33 weeks so we still have a few more weeks ahead of us before bubs arrival but on mentioning it to mum (a smoker) tonight and letting her know that when she comes to visit us and bub she'll need to wash and change, she didn't seem overly pleased.
I know it's our baby and we decide what is best for baby and make the rules, but just wondering if this seems over the top. Is it harsh to request that the grandma has to wash and change before she can hold her grandchild?
