I am currently bfing my 3 week old son. I just came back from a concert and was surrounded by people who were smoking cigarettes and pot. I am NOT a smoker and was wondering if it is safe to nurse my son tonight since I was exposed to the second hand smoke? I took a shower as soon as I got home as to not irritate my precious son with the nasty smell of smoke. I would really appreciate a quick response that way I can nurse or just pump and dispose. Thanks!!!

You're fine to nurse your son; I'm not sure if he'll get any nicotine or not, but if he does get some, it will be a very very very small amount, since you didn't smoke yourself.

Even smoking mothers are encouraged to b___stfeed, so I would a__sume that you are better off than giving him formula.
