Painted room?


LO is napping and my mum has come round to help me paint one of the walls in the living room. Stupid question but are the 'fumes' safe for lo? should we air out the room before bringing LO back in there? Does it depend on what type of paint it is?

Thanks in advance!

I think it does depend on the type of paint but I also think most paints are fairly harmless these days. Saying that I personally would air it out first but I'm a real worry wart. Happy painting! x

Thanks, will probably air the room out a bit first. The can says "99% solvent free" so I guess it should be ok, doesn't mention anything on there about not exposing it to babies either. Hopefully she will take a long nap.

Yeah I think they're pretty harmless but I would still make sure the room is well ventilated and prob wouldn't let LO spend much time in there until maybe tomorrow or Monday x

Yeah, as long as it's not lead based, but most aren't these days. We painted LO's room last year, and she was in the house.
