The unexpected and sudden infant death risk doubled with smoking during pregnancy. While the results of this study reported by CNN may not be shocking, what is surprising is how they define "smoking".

Pregnant mothers who smoke a pack of cigarettes a day triple the risk of SUID.

The AAP results report, "If we assume causality, 22% of SUIDs in the United States can be directly attributed to maternal smoking during pregnancy."
