Disturbing videos of another child vaping have surfaced just days after a mother apologized for a separate incident in which she laughed while her child used her vape.
The new videos show a little girl vaping next to a woman who is a relative of the child from Ceduna, on South Australia’s southwest coast.
Some images feature smiling emojis.
In the first video, the child – who is young enough to still have a pacifier – vapes next to the woman and blows vapor at the camera.
In the second, a hand reaches forward and hands the kid a vape before the little girl casually inhales and exhales.
It comes after Annie Donovan, 16, of the NSW mid-north coast, apologized for forcing her 10-month-old baby, Lebron, to use a vape.
Videos have surfaced of yet another child using a vape, as a Ceduna woman is shown vaping next to her baby relative, while another video shows a hand forcing a vape at the same child
The recent spate of videos showing children vaping has Cancer Council SA manager Chris Morris warned that vapes are ‘not toys’.
“They are not for children, they are very dangerous,” she told 10 News First.
‘The nicotine contained in the vapors can cause children to vomit, become unconscious and, in the worst case scenario, have a seizure.
“We know there are kids in Adelaide right now who are waking up at night to go out and get an e-cigarette.”
The Australian Medical Association (AMA) has called for tighter restrictions on the importation and attractive taste of vapes.
“We know that all of these things contain toxic chemicals and a lot of them contain nicotine,” said Dr. Michelle Atchison of the AMA.
“We need some regulation around the importation of vapor products.
“We want those flavors to be taken out of vapes.”
The child – who is young enough to still have a pacifier – can be seen inhaling and exhaling the toxic chemicals

Mum of 11-month-old Lebron Ms Donovan said she was unaware she was being filmed holding the vape to the child’s mouth and insists she learned a ‘huge lesson’.
“It was just a lame joke, I put the vape next to him and I never thought he would get it, I thought he would push it away,” she told the Daily telegram.
“I know I did wrong, but what people say and write to me is full, I don’t deserve that.”
Ms. Donovan’s mother, Kristy, said her daughter was a good mother to Lebron and had learned her lesson after one of the worst weeks of her life.
The family was forced to flee the highway after Ms Donovan received a swarm of death threats and violent messages after the video quickly circulated on social media.
NSW police visited the family home on Wednesday to inquire about the baby’s well-being and seize the vape pen, which was nicotine-free. They also investigate death threats.
Daily Mail Australia approached South Australian Police for comment on the Ceduna case.
