A gas heater in the nursery

When I found out my daughter was pregnant, there were all  kinds of emotions going through my head. She is almost forty-two years old.  It’s not like this is her first child, but her children are nearly grown. Was she able to safely have another child.  Who was going to babysit this infant when she went to work. I was at her home and we were talking about the baby and what was going to happen.  The first concern she had, had nothing to do with the babysitting. She already all of that taken care of. She said the baby wasn’t due until October or November and she wasn’t worried.  She was planning on bringing the little one to me and having me babysit. She said I did a fabulous job with the last one, and she was sure I would just as good a job spoiling this one. My biggest concern was the nursery.  She thought about putting the nursery in the sunroom. There would be plenty of natural lighting and she only had to add curtains so the shade would help the baby to sleep. She said she had the gas fireplace out there. Being a house inspector in the past, I instantly got my feathers ruffled.  Years ago, you weren’t allowed to have a gas heater in a child’s bedroom. I began investigating, and I found out that a gas heater, was allowed, but it came with an if. There needed to be a safety cage surrounding the heater. There also had to be a carbon monoxide detector in case the gas heater malfunctioned.
