I recently started my maternity leave from work and am going out of my mind with way too much free time. I'm considering painting our kitchen...would this harm the baby?

  • YES! Paint fumes contain VOCs that can make everyone sick!

    Get a no-VOC paint. Sometimes it is called "milk-paint" bc it uses a milk protein.
