We are staying at my parents house and they are painting.<br><br>
My mother tells me the paint doesn't smell, that she bought "good paint"<br><br>
I have a 9 1/2 month old, how bad is it for them? I know paint isn't good for<br><br>
anyone, I do not want it to affect him. any ideas?

Well alot depends on the weather. And if it is wall paint I don't know any that is "good" for a young child to breathe. I for one would make sure that the room your sleeping is is well ventilated, maybe even put a fan in the window, though I don't know what the temp is there and it might be too cold. Is there someone else nearby that you could stay with instead? I personally would not let a child that young be trapped in a house being painted. If they are painting now and it will be dry and such by the time you get there then just make sure they air the place out well enough. Sorry I wish I had better advice! BTW you and your boy are just gorgeous!
