I'm due in 3 weeks and I'm a candle person, I love burning candles.. I was wondering if burning scented candles once baby comes home is safe or not... Thanks!

I am a mother of a 1 year old and safety is a big concern of mine. I sell Scentsy Wickless Candles and they are a safer alternative to traditional candles. They use a low watt light bulb to warm the candle wax in a decorative ceramic warmer. No flame, no soot, no smoke. They last longer than traditional candles and save you money in the long run compared to jar candles. Also the wax melts at the same temp as a cosmetic paraffin wax at the salon so it won't burn you or your children. Hope this helps.

I did. Just make sure you keep using common sense when burning candles. Although with a newborn you'll likely be very tired for a while so make sure you aren't completely exhausted when you burn them. Don't want to be falling asleep with candles lit! =)

Should not be a problem, just watch for any kind of allergy symptoms as the baby gets older.

I don't see a problem as long as you are doing it safely. Make sure you never leave your baby alone with a lit candle, even if they're on the other side of the room. Also make sure candles are high up and out of reach of little fingers, babies are very curious and it won't be long before your child is exploring your house and possessions. Definately make sure candles are completely exstinguished when you've finished with them.
