I'm glad I could entertain you but I work PRN in the NICU as well as working in the adult ICU. I'm also glad to see you've survived being near stinky people to initiate kangaroo care without developing any life threatening illnesses.

There is a distinction between "stinky" people and people who smell like smoke. The former doesn't bother me. The latter, yes because of potential health hazards.

In any case, if you think it's fine for people to smell of smoke around you, it's okay, we can agree to disagree.

It certainly is NOT okay for the baby, that is for sure!
