I would like to paint my 7 month old DDs room. I was just wondering how long she would have to stay out of room afterwards. Also does anyone know which type of paint is safe to use? Thank you.

Any normal paint that you buy in a shop - they don't sell paint with lead in anymore! And just stay out until it's stopped smelling of fresh paint
- usually only until the paint is dry, in my experience, if you can open a window and you wouldn't want to move furniture back until the paint was dry anyway. So no different from painting a room for any other age of person.

Ok thanks. Think I panicked a bit after googling!

Mary Berry top tip. Cut 2 onions in half. Leave in room for 24 hours with door shut. Paint smell all gone apparently.

I prefer to leave a room for 24 hours, with the window partly open (paint dries by ventilation, not by heat), especially if it is a bedroom where someone would be in there all night.

Even emulsion can give me a headache.
