Re: If you coulodn't breastfeed your baby

I am all for donor milk, but not from a smoker. Studies have shown smoking actually damages your DNA, and the damage is apparent several generations on. Not talking about second-hand smoke, but epigenetics where environmental influences can cause genetic changes, in the same realm as pesticide exposure. Yes, the chemicals in cigarettes are that bad. Don't get me wrong, I used to love to smoke a cigarette while getting drunk with my friends way back when. I'm not judging. I just don't want that milk and those chemicals in my baby.

I would use formula before giving donor milk from a smoker.
