Abstract

Cigarette smoke is a common air pollutant that affects the health of both active and passive smokers. Passive smoking refers to individuals who are exposed to the smoke exhaled by smokers or volatile compounds from burning tobacco products. The percentage of smoking behavior in homes with babies and toddlers continues to rise, with 85% of family members smoking in their homes as of May 2022. This study utilized a quantitative research design with a case-control study to investigate the factors affecting nicotine exposure in breastfeeding mothers in the Balai Agung Public Health Center's working area. The study utilized a point-time approach, with each object observed only once. The results of the study showed that age and education level had no significant impact on nicotine exposure, while knowledge, length of exposure to cigarette smoke per day, and the ventilation conditions of the house were significant factors affecting exposure to nicotine in nursing mothers. To address this issue, the Musi Banyuasin District Health Office has issued regulations prohibiting smoking in homes. Furthermore, Regular health checks focused on the condition of breastfeeding mothers and their babies are also essential to ensure their well-being. The Balai Agung Health Center must be more proactive in taking measures to protect their patients from the hazards of smoking.
