exterior painting - should we leave?

Hey guys - I'm having the exterior of my historic house painted. The professional painter will be scraping / removing existing loose paint, which is definately LEAD paint.

I've got a 3 month old baby.

Should I get my wife & baby out of the house while the work is being done? And afterwards?

Thanks for opinions.

If the windows and doors stay closed it shouldn't be a problem although you might have better piece of mine with them elsewhere. Be sure they contain and dispose of all scrapings and there shouldn't be any worries in the future.

Done right it's not a big deal really
It should be fine
However if my wife wanted to stay at her friend's with a 3 month old baby for POM, I wouldn't argue
