Infants exposed to nicotine through breast-feeding and the air may have increased health risks. These health risks must be weighed against the health benefits infants receive from breast milk. The purpose of this longitudinal, quasi-experimental pilot study was to determine if smoking hygiene, an educational intervention, reduces the frequency of respiratory symptoms experienced by infants whose mother smoke and breast-feed and to determine the ease of implementation of the intervention by mothers. There were 12 participants who completed the study in the intervention group. The control group contained 9 participants. The results indicate that eight out of the twelve women in the intervention group found the intervention easy to implement. Although not statistically significant, sixty-six percent of the infants in the control group experienced respiratory illness while forty-two percent in the intervention group were ill (x2 = .814; p > .05).
