What kind of effects can black mold have ona baby (say about 4 mnths old)? I googled it but Im not finding anything specific... Only really what effects it has on an adult.

Thanks!

Well whatever effects it has on an adult would prob be much worse on a child. Do you have black mold in your house? :/ I think they condemn houses with enough black mold.

I'd guess the same potential effects.



But...my sister rented the bottom level of a couple's house for awhile, then one day she moved her dresser and found black mold growing all over the wall behind it, and she moved her other furniture and found out it was EVERYWHERE. This was...8ish years ago and they are okay (her son was one year old).



Don't freak yourself out with potential side effects if something like this happened, just keep your eyes open to signs that something may be wrong.



ETA: Obviously fix the problem though, lol.

I think its wrong that landlords can occupy a family into a place with mold . I think that along with the laws about keeping heat and hot water on, that there should obviously be a law against that too, especially if the landlord doesnt try to do something about the mold problem.

another thing- IF YOU FIND IT DONT IGNORE IT! CLEAN IT!
mold will release spores into the air which over time can make you REALLY sick and even cause a skin eating virus =/ its pretty nasty.

The white stuff is the spores apparently, before it turns into black mold.
