Smoking, breastfeeding and your baby's sleep

I saw this the other day in a newspaper and thought it was interesting enough to scan in and share.

A brief version of the article can be seen here as well. I think one of the interesting findings was that even though the breast milk tasted like nicotine in the initial portion of the study, the intake of milk did not vary much. So while the babies fed the same amount, the length and quality of sleep was much worse.
