Tips to Achieve a Healthier, More Restful Nursery
Date:6/17/2008

ATLANTA, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- While billions of dollars are spent yearly on strollers, high chairs, car seats, and other items to help infants stay safe and comfortable -- parents often overlook the environmental health impact of the one place where their babies spend the majority of their time -- the nursery.

Steven Hong, a specialist who designs healthier indoor environments for the home, and president of Sylvane.com (http://www.sylvane.com), offers these tips to help parents create a healthier restful environment for their infants:

-- Paint First, Breathe Later - Fresh paint may look great in a nursery,

but lingering fumes can cause problems from nausea and eye irritation

to internal damage. When decorating, plan -- and paint -- the nursery

well ahead of mother's due date. Otherwise, have the baby sleep in a

different room until the fresh paint has dried and fully off-gassed.

-- Clear the Air - A baby's lungs are very sensitive and pollutants, new

furniture, plastics, new carpeting, mold, and even dust mites can

irritate. Clear the air with a quality air purifier

(http://www.sylvane.com/air-purifiers.html), or run the air

conditioning. Keep ducts clean and change and clean furnace filters

regularly.

-- The Weekly Wash - Dust mites thrive in moist areas and are a major

source of allergies. Wash bedding at least once weekly in hot water to

keep mites, and their excretions, from building up.

-- Clean Enough to Eat Off - Since babies spend much of their time on the

floor and place nearly everything they touch in their mouths, it's

critical to keep floors clean and germ-free. Consider using a high

quality HEPA-filtered vacuum (
