That's a very good question. The answer is unknown.

Modern paints have low toxicity, but all have some toxicity.

In the case of polyurethane paint and some floor coverings you can probably cause brain damage. These are the bad news bears.

Read the labels mon the paints.

In the case of flat water based wall paints the danger is not significant if the room is well ventilated with an exhaust fan and the baby is kept out of the room for the first 12 hours or so.

Prudence would dictate the use of water-based paints, keeping the windows open and using fans.

One thing to do is to make a "positive pressure" room for the baby. The pressure in the room is kept higher by a fan pumping air from the outside in while in the painted areas fans blow toe air to the outside.

The best thing to do would be to keep the baby in another house during the painting.
