I know it is very bad and I beat myself up over this all the time before I was pregnant I smoked pot when we started to try for a baby seriously I quit, however i also smoke ciggerates those seems to be harder to stop I had smoked a harsher brand ( Marlboro red's and switched to lights hoping that i could ween myself but it seems that with stopping the pot and no caffeine which i love soda it makes it even harder i have smoke ciggerates since i was 13 now being 22 even taking classes to try and stop I find it confusing will this hurt my milk to the point it would be smarter not to breastfeed? I am uncertain with this my grandmother does not want me to breastfeed and has brought this to my attention and i know i should atleast thke it into consideration.

if you smoke less than 10 a day then it will not pass through to your milk. if you smoke more than that can you try and cut down? u can have caffeine while preg. it is better than smoking. would drinking soda help you cut down on cigs? i know that they are 2 different things but quitting everything at once is really hard.

I have already stopped the caffeine really well I do still have soda just without the caffeine. I have been told by my Dr. that when trying to stop smoking if you intake caffeine it will only slow the process down which is why I stopped that a little faster and easier.

I quit smoking a few years ago by using the patch. (You can buy the 21 mg and cut them up as you reduce the dose. I also used a straw to suck through to simulate the feeling of smoking. Check with your MD,Lac consultatant or midwife and see if they feel the patch would be right for you.
