'Teen Mom 2' Leah Messer Caught Smoking With Her Twin Girls! Why Would She Put Them In Harm's Way?

We can’t believe Leah would smoke a cigarette directly next to her twin girls, especially when Ali already suffers from health issues! Do you think she should stop smoking ASAP?

There’s no doubt that Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer is a good mother — she’s given up a lot recently to make sure her 19-month-old twin daughters, Aleeah and Aliannah, live a happy life. But seriously, why would she ever put her babies’ health at risk by smoking cigarettes RIGHT next to them? It just NOT ok!

“Babies exposed to second hand smoke after birth are more likely to die from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and are at greater risk for asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infections and respiratory infections,” Dr. Tara A. Solomon tells HollyBaby.com.

To make matters worse, one of Leah’s daughters, Aliannah, suffers from development issues and struggles with her eye sight and leg and arm movements. Smoking could cause her even more health problems in the future!

“Smoking is an unhealthy habit for parents and their kids,” Ari Brown, MD, author of the Expecting 411 series tells HollyBaby.com. “Unless you smoke outside your house, then come back inside and change clothes before picking up your little one, your child is breathing your second hand smoke.”

“Children whose parents smoke are also more likely to wheeze or have asthma,” Dr. Brown adds. “There’s also research that shows babies of smoking parents experience more colic, sleep less, and have a greater risk of obesity. If you can’t stop for your own health, do it for your child!”

Leah, make sure your baby girls are safe! They shouldn’t be surrounded by family members who smoke!

Smoking around your kids is not a crime. So many people do it. I’m not saying I agree with it or that I would do it, but seriously the only reason people are blowing it up this way is because she was on Teen Mom 2. If you saw another woman doing the same thing, I bet no one would say anything. Since she was on Teen Mom 2 though, everyone criticizes and tries to make it out like she’s a bad mother. SO many people do it! Heck, a lot of women smoke WHILE pregnant. She’s a great mother so get off her back.

Oh my goodness!! It obviously shows that in the first picture she is OUTSIDE smoking without the girls, then she is inside without a cigarette. It isn’t like she was standing right next to them. You should really get a real picture of her doing it in front of them if you are going to call her out on it!!

from the photo it looks like she is outside, her girls aren’t anywhere near her, i think that before you start calling people out you should have more evidence of the so call offence. oh and everyone who smokes knows the effects that smoking has on the body, and they don’t need do gooders constantly reminding them, a person will only quit when they are ready

I personaly dont smoke. I know alot of parents that do and as long as the child isnt around whats the big deal? People are willing to make money off anything these days.

From what the two pics show you NEVER actually see Leah smoking around the twins! The 1st pics shows her with 2 friends smoking then the 2nd pic shows her standing by the twins but with no cigg, seriously if yall are going to post things to “make” moms look bad then post a pic that PROVES they were actually doing something wrong!!

From the way the picture looks she is not even smoking around her twins. So what if she smokes the difference in being a good mom and a bad mom is what you expose your children to and she is doing everything she can to take care of those girls.I mean come on their is a window between her and her girls when she is OUTSIDE smoking.

Seriously, it’s a cig. It’s not like she’s lighting up a joint in front of her kids. This story is just to cause more unnecessary drama in Leah’s life.

Honestly I hate when people who share info about sids are so wrong and giving bad information making more people misinformed sids is something that happens to a child in the first 12 months of life normally between 2-4 months so her babies being 19 months kind of puts them out of risk for this also sids has been being linked to a problem in babies seritonin levels if u want to ask an expert about sids talk to a mother who has lost their baby to sids oh ask them all about smoking too so u realize most sids babies are not exposed to smoke thank Rip my baby boy Chevy 6-7-11

Wow. Seriously? I wasn’t aware that being a parent meant you can’t smoke a cigarette. It wasn’t like she was IN HER FACE, and they were outdoors. lol SMH!!!
