Nicotine exposure during pregnancy, whether from smoking cigarettes, or nicotine patches and e-cigarettes, increases risk of sudden infant death syndrome -- sometimes known as "cot death" -- according to new research published in the Journal of Physiology.

However these nicotine replacement therapies may not protect infants from SIDS.
