What do you think...good idea/ bad idea?

I was wondering if it would be ok to take my 10 week old in her car seat into the tanning bed room with me....

TURN HER AWAY from the light and COVER her seat with a blanket.

I WILL NOT do anything to harm her ever, I am going to ask her Dr. But just wondered what you moms thought first.

  • I owned a tanning salon for years and I would not take her in there at all, better safe then sorry but that's just MO, it's like the sun and the rays go throughout the room

  • I'm not sure about this one, I never go tanning, so I would just wait and see what the dr says just to be sure.

  • You can't be serious....haven't you heard how bad tanning beds are for adults, let alone small children? Wow. Just wow. The dr will probably tell you to get your head examined. Why would you possibly think that's OK?

  • I would say no, find a sitter and go with out her. (just to be on the safe side).

  • KateShesGreat...chill out. I didnt say I was going to lay her in the bed naked. I was keeping her in her seat and covering it with a thick blanket. And I wasnt going to do it if I decided it was bad for her. I would never do anything to hurt my baby.
