Safe to still breastfeed baby after getting paint on hands while painting a room in our house (washed hands before nursing)?
Probably: The common latex paints have few if any issues which would exclude breastfeeding after exposure to fumes or from skin contact.

Head: No, especially if the baby is acting fine. Watch for extreme irritability, vomiting in the first 4-12 hrs after any potential injury, and if so then ER. But if the baby was on the floor and rolled and hit head, that mechanism of injury shouldn't be severe. If fell off bed onto hardwood floor, then different story. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
