Painters had to use oil based primer on bedroom door frames - smell has dissipated since earlier today but still there. I have newborn-- windows open , ac on. I don't have anywhere else to stay so we will have to sleep here. Will my baby be okay?

In brief: Probably fine but...

Use big fan in room. In future look for paints with low VOC's (volatile organic compounds).
Consumer Reports magazine tests them for you. Your infant will let you know if he is uncomfortable by crying! Don't worry so much!
