Any body dealt with this before or have advice?? My father in law smokes in his has and has for years. Though he doesn't smoke while i'm there and doubt he will when the baby is there, the smell and chemicals are still present in the fibers of the furniture and in their air. We still leave smelling like cigarettes all over when we leave...and we're only there a few hours.
I'm due in September and very worried about this. I don't know how to really approach this in a nice way without offending them. My mother in law will want to keep the baby over I already know and have us all over often. I want to make it clear that the baby being in that environment for an extended amount of time is unacceptable to me, but they are so easily offended. I don't want to push them away or make them feel that they can't be part of Lucas' life when he's born. What to do???!!!
