Not at all. Second hand smoke is so dangerous, and she should care enough for your child to not put her in danger like that.

I will lose the plot if she smokes in front of the baby, we always have the same argument to shuff78212 since my DD was a baby but my SO doesn't seem that bothered she only sees my daughter for a few hrs u think it wouldnt be to much to ask! x

You have to ensure you and your SO refuse her access when she will be alone with your child. You both have to agree on it which might be a problem if your SO does not hold your view as strongly. Check out online as now they say third hand smoking can also be a problem for little ones.

Wow I never thought about "third-hand" smoke. Second-hand is bad enough!

To the OP, you're not overreacting. Smoking around kids is BAD for them. I recall living next door to a set of twin toddlers who had parents that smoked. I don't know whether they smoked indoors or not, but in the wintertime those kids had the most awful, deep barking coughs I had heard. I felt soo bad for them. It sounded painful. It's smart to keep your precious daughter away from that!

Sounds like it's time for an ultimatum, as long as you can get your partner on board.

No, she should definitely respect your wishes because it effects your child's health. If she truly cared, she would listen.

I would happily give an ultimatum but I don't think my partner would agree he spoke to her today and she said it's her house and she can do what she likes and he said she should respect our views so we will see what happens but that's my point if she really cared about her granddaughter she wouldn't smoke near her but she doesn't shes just selfish and thinks she can do what she likes she's very much mistaken if she thinks that x

My MIL smokes, even right in front of me. I'm worried about her with our baby. If she Doesn't stand by what we believe for OUR child then forget about it.

I would just stop taking your daughter to her house, in that case.

I would be PISSED, if someone was smoking around my kids. If she can't respect your wishes, and your daughters safety than I wouldn't take my kid over there anymore.. so she knew how serious I was!
