There is much to learn and much to be cautious about when it comes to choosing paints for your baby’s nursery. I’m hoping that this information will help you to make safer, and healthier choices for our children. Paints are made of volatile organic compounds or VOCs. These generate toxic fumes which can be dangerous for your little one’s weak immunity system. Babies are much more susceptible to theseVOC’s.So, in short it would really be best to keep baby out of the house while painting is being done and until the paint is completely dry.If you must paint there are also low VOCs or no VOC paints available which are less harmful or try to plan the project before the baby arrives and of course the same rules apply for pregnant mothers as for babies stay away from wet paints.
