    I was only around the paint fumes for 10 or 15 minutes. I left my son with my boyfriend so I could go home to get some clean clothes they painted this morning in my house. Is it dangerous for me to breastfeed him now? And what should I do about our clothes I can smell paint fumes on them?

    I would say wash any clothes that smell of it and have a shower or bath, wash any fumes out of your hair to be safe. I wouldn't have thought such a short time in it would be bad for the breast milk though, just make sure the smell's away from you and your clothing.
