Its so ignorant its sad… Maybe someone should talk to her a bit about SIDS risks, cause that poor boy’s a trifecta (male, low birth weight, nicotine exposure).

Wow, thats awful……a pack a day? That is really alot. Did she even try to cut down? I used to smoke, so I understand how difficult it can be(I quit when I was pregnant…fortunately it was easy cause they started making me sick), but even women who can’t quit usually atleast try to cut way back!

I hope her baby makes a full recovery, and I hope this motivates her to quit, and I hope she uses her experience as a PSA to other women who are TTC and smoke.

@Laurenskii:  Didn’t you make a post about this before? I remember reading it and feeling so sad for that poor little baby. It sucks that you had to watch this happen and I’d be furious at his mom too, especially since she’s a nurse. How selfish can you get?!

I remember your original post about this. That’s so sad to hear. It sucks that this child has to suffer for his mother’s poor decisions. I hope that he gets the care he needs and the mom gets the reality check she needs.

This makes me want to barf… That poor baby boy. I wish him all the best, and I hope she feels guilty as FUCK and it gives her a (repairable, I guess) ulcer.

I have NO Words…

This honestly makes me ill.

I don’t know how to feel at all… I am soooo torn.

I hope he makes it

YET, at the same time… she seems like a totally irresponsible Parent

If Baby makes it, he’ll probably have asthma his whole life

AND be living with this crazy chain smoking Mother

She needs a SERIOUS Wake Up Call

(But I couldn’t for the life of me wish this baby ill)

As a Nurse who should KNOW Better… she truly doesn’t deserve him

This is child abuse at its finest !!

Frankly, this just shows the power of addiction. Someone who is a healthcare professional was unable to stop using (whether it was cigarettes, cocaine, marijuana, heroin etc ) when pregnant. Nurses in LDR and the NICU see it all the time.

Hopefully this will be a wakeup call for her and she will find a way to quit smoking.

That is so sad.  Unforunately my mom smoked with all three of us girls and we do not have any major medical issues. I hope he is OK.
