Carpet in baby's room?

  • I am getting ready to set up the baby's room. I wanted to put carpet in it but one of my friends was telling me that I should not and just have regular floors instead due to the dust that the carpet would pick up. Does anyone know if the carpet would affect the baby. I am planning on asking my doctor at my next appointment but it is two weeks away. Any advice would be appreciated.

  • It is perfectly fine to have carpet if that is what you prefer. The dust issue is only there if your child has asthma or allergies that are bothered by it.

  • I think it would be fine to have carpet.  My daughter has always had carpet in her room and when I found out I was pregnant this time around we tore out all the old carpet and put new down in my son's room too.

  • Carpet is great, just be sure to vacuum regularly and you should have no problems.
