AIR QUAL­ITY

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Specialreport -

The num­ber one non-ne­go­tiable rule for lit­tle ones is ‘no smok­ing in the house or any­where near chil­dren’, says Me­lanie. You can also keep the air clear by turn­ing on the extractor fan when us­ing the stove as well as avoid­ing aerosol prod­ucts and room de­odoris­ers, es­pe­cially if baby is sen­si­tive to strong odours.

Adam rec­om­mends avoid­ing un­flued gas heaters and wood fires in win­ter. “And if you use a split-cy­cle air-con­di­tioner to keep your home cool in sum­mer and warm in win­ter, make sure it’s ad­e­quately fil­tered and cleaned at least twice a year,” he says.
