Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

my husband is a carpet installer, and there shouldnt be any fumes at all when your puting carpet in. just the new carpet smell. if there is carpet fumes, they glued their carpet down... and as far as i know, you shouldnt do that. regardless, we moved into our new house and put carpet throughout our house as well, and i have a 9mth old (5mths at the time we moved in) as well as a 19mth old (15mths at the time we moved in) and it wasnt harmful to them or us, because there was no smell.
