    Default Vaping parents & second hand vape

    I have a 5 month old and I still get a little paranoid when my bf vapes while holding him. I am constantly flailing my arms around like a crazy person to get it out of his face. Mind you, he's not blowing it AT him, just near.
    I am not looking forward to the day he grabs ahold of his VAMO and sticks it in his mouth. -____-
    Better then finding analogs though I suppose!

    I think this is a very valid concern. We have to make sacrifices for our children. I smoked out side when mine were young I think Vaping in the next room is acceptable. I think you are a normal caring mother and you should stick to your guns you can never be to safe with your child's health!

    I would be paranoid about that too.. My wife and I are expecting in the next few weeks, and I'm not planning to vape around the baby. It might not be harmful or anything, but I don't want to take the chance.

    I was raised in a house full of smokers and I turned out fine, as far as I'm aware of at lease ::twitch:: :P

    I think the vapor in a closed room if it is thick and hanging in the air can irritate some people's eyes. I wouldn't do it in a closed car or too close to a baby.

    I would say the same. I have a 5 & 7 year old and try not to vape around them....I do vape at my office desk in my room, but they aren't in here much....

    I am only adding my because baby's are Gods gift and should be cared for as such!
    My hubby does not vape, he is still smoking. But when I vape around him, he does make comments about the vaper being much thicker and makes him feel like he is fighting for breath, (oxygen) I too have noticed since I stopped smoking cigs and started vaping, I have a much wetter cough. I do notice when I am sitting at my desk, in this small office, vaping. The air is much thicker. So my opinion on this is that if it was my baby (and I have 4) I would not vape around them. The next room is fine but anything within 2-3 feet I would leave the room. The vaper from ECigs is thicker and may make it harder for the baby to breath comfortably. BUT also, it is a heck of a lot healthier than analogs.

    My youngest is 13 months. I don't mind vaping with him in the room, i just open a window, but not while he's on my lap. He is however ALWAYS reaching for my mod, just like my keys,cell phone, tv remote, everything... just gotta keep it out of reach.

    I suppose i will continue to push my argument. Even though baby daddy will most likely read this.
    So keep em coming!
    Maybe once the baby gets ahold of and drops/throws the vamo he'll get it. Lol

    I have a 2 year old - I don't vape if she's in the room. I read a study that said second hand e cig vapor is pretty much harmless . . but, still, it feels wrong.
