Ahhh I am getting new carpet in dd bedroom tomorrow and my dh said something about dangers in the chemicals so I went on google and I read all this stuff on the chemicals and how they CAN be harmfull. Does anyone know the reality of this? I don't want her to have trouble breathing. She is also just learning to crawl, that is why I wanted new carpet, I thought it would be better, now what do I do???????

I have heard that it's in the adhesive tape and glue...

Carpets off gas for quite awhile, and some have formaldehyde resins in them, there are more eco friendly versions. Personally I hate carpet because I have allergies and the dust kills me, we only have a couple rooms w/ it. The rooms we ripped up are wood floor, so much better for me, and you wouldn't believe how much gross dirt was underneath. I will never have carpet again.

You can try getting an air purifier and running it all of the time. I've heard that it helps a bit.

Thanks I do have an air purifier, and believe me I hate carpets, but hard wood was over $2000! compared to $600 for carpet, so we had to do the carpet, but now I am really wishing we couldv'e figured something else out. I am going to try to air the room out all day before I let her in there.
