An infant whose mother smokes during or after pregnancy is at a greater risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). And, exposure to secondhand smoke in the household doubles a baby’s risk of SIDS. For more information on doing all that you can to decrease the risk of SIDS, or for information on smoking cessation, please call Garrett County Early Care Programs 301-334-7720or 301-895-3111.
