He also changes as soon as he gets home if he had a cig that day and once the baby comes will be washing his hands etc before touching her when he gets home.

Is it possible to find other accommodations for your guest? You can't tell another person not to smoke but you can request that your guest not smoke in your home, vehicle, or around your child. It may be a bit more work but personally I would find myself doing a bit more laundry and cleaning if the smell was too bad while the person stays.
No absolutely not in the house. I wouldn't allow that even without any children. Thankfully this house doesn't have any screen doors as that was an issue during warm months in our old house. Doesn't matter if you go outside if all the smoke blows right back in!

Staying somewhere else isn't an option. It's either here or not at all.

I think a lot of the issue is doubly compounded by a general lack of cleanliness (personal and clothing wise). So it's just like all of this accumulated smoke all layered up.
