Are new carpets safe for newborn babies?

I am due to have my first baby on 10th Oct 07. My boyfriend is suggesting putting new carpets down in the bedroom and babys room some time in September. We would get something 100% natural (probably wool) but I am still worried this might be too close to the birth to be safe, smell and fume-wise for the baby. Has anyone got any advice? Am I worrying unnecessarily? Is it OK as long as they are put down at least say 4 weeks before due date?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I am sure it'll be fine. gives you plenty of time to give the rooms a bit of an airing before baby is born

Will be absolutely fine after a couple of days airing - I really wouldn't worry
