Re: If you coulodn't breastfeed your baby

I have many friends who EBFed and smoked occasionally during (most after infancy). So maybe if I knew the person and it was not an all day every day thing, yes I would feel it was still preferable to formula. But for a person who smokes daily, I would not. I know it is still better for a smoking mom to BF but I think those benefit v risk calculations are different for donor milk because of the lack of physical contact. But I really think it is a very personal choice and so many factors in any given situation.
