    Isn't 'just' unethical, but also Most Dangerous for the baby.

    It's a well known fact that cat feces infect babies and pregnant women with a parasite producing Leukemia (cancer to the blood), and other Important Diseases we must pay attention to. I don't mean to scare you, but that's the honest truth; in a family of medical doctors I learned a few things through the years...

    -Cat litters should always be in a ventilated area, and away from all human contact.

    Not unethical, per se... Just not very smart. You want the best for your baby, right? Then, that means you want to keep your baby safe from harmful substances, correct? That includes litter. Just smelling it is somewhat, toxic like. If the baby ever ingest it, then it'll get sick. Cats get sick if they eat the litter. Besides, aren't you worried about the litter box stinking up the room? Or the cat making a mess in the room? Isn't it usually better to place the litter box in a tiled room? Either way, it probably isn't a very good idea to put the litter box in the baby's room. Good luck figuring out where to put it. :)

    No it is not unethical, but if the child is of walking/crawling age is can present health and safety risks. Even as an infant the dust from the litter can be an irritant to the child's lungs.
