Can newborns be around kerosene heaters?

We're getting ready to have a really bad ice storm, and they're saying that the power might go out for several days. So we are going to stay at someone's house that has a bunch of kerosene heaters. I have a 4 wk old, do you think it will be ok for her to be around the kerosene?

  • I don't know about the kerosene, but make sure they boil water to keep the air moist, my in laws use those heaters and have to do that, otherwise they get so sick.
