  • Every doc that I have asked has said yes as long as the room is ventilated.

  • I understand that if it is a water-based paint then it is OK if well-ventilated, but solvent-based, no.

    To be safe, ask your doctor.

  • Would a latex paint be okay??
    yeah I'll have to ask the doctor... it doesn't say anything about pregnancy on the paint can... i don't know?
