Should Mom Paint Baby's Room?

HEALTH NEWS (KAIT) - Having a baby is always exciting, especially when decorating the baby's new room.

However, doctors find that if you're the mom expecting, helping paint baby's new room may not be the best idea.

Of course, always consult your doctor before attempting to paint or be around the fumes.

Doctors say that if you are around paint, wear a face mask and clothing to guard your skin.

Also, don't paint all in one day. Spread out the project over several days if possible.

A new mom should also avoid latex paints and strong chemicals.

All in all, avoiding paint fumes is best for a pregnant mom but if you must paint, then remember these tips.
