Parental smoking is associated with increased frequency of respiratory diseases including hospitalizations in infants.

Study hypothesis: Parental education regarding the association between parental smoking and respiratory diseases in the infant, and guidance on ways to decrease smoke exposure by the infant, provided shortly after the infant is born, will decrease infants' morbidity.

Mothers who are in Maternity ward following birth will fill a questionnaire regarding smoking habits. Parents will be divided into non-smokers and smokers. Half of the smoking mothers will receive guidance regarding the association between parents smoking and respiratory diseases in the infant. They will also get ideas on how to reduce smoke exposure by their infant. 3 months and 1 year later all parents will be contacted by phone and asked about their children's health.
