That means they will likely be crawling around and rolling on the carpets. Many, many years ago carpet cleaning companies used chemicals that were harsh if they were exposed to a person’s skin. The skin of a small baby is much more sensitive and there were reports that the baby would have an irritable rash. It could also cause a baby to have an upset stomach since toys left on the carpet would ends up in the baby’s mouth.
