Moms who quit smoking have happier babies



Mothers who quit smoking during pregnancy tend to have happier babies, Reuters Health reports.

Babies whose mothers continued to smoke during pregnancy were much more moroccan and British researchers believe that mothers who manage to give up this unhealthy habit express their care and affection for the baby in many more ways.
Babies from non-smoking mothers are more temperamental than those born to mothers who have failed to quit smoking, and researchers believe that mothers who quit smoking do something very special.
Tobacco can affect the development of the fetus and has also been shown to affect the baby if it is exposed to passive smoking.
The researchers followed a group of 18,000 babies born between 2000 and 2002 but their mothers, who were asked a series of questions related to the fear of their babies.
Mothers were classified as inhaled smokers, occasional smokers, non-smokers and those who gave up smoking. Mothers who gave up smoking had much calmer babies.
Researchers believe that quitting smoking is difficult at any time and it is known that the majority of women who quit smoking because they are pregnant will relapse from smoking. So those mothers do a purely maternal action to protect their babies.
The study shows that mothers who are smokers rich have the most difficult babies, and they have the lowest values ​​in the tests of good mood.
