Default Switching to Plastisol- looking for advice

Howdy! Currently printing waterbased, out of my basement gararge and having lots of trouble. Looking to make the switch to plastisol, since I have a toddler and don't ever get a large "chunk" of time to print volume or practice. What brands of ink are recommended? Looking for a middle of the road price to get started, and interested in started kits (if available) with multiple colors. Are there any plastisol inks with low odor/ fumes? I'm currently pregnant and looking to avoid lots of fumes, however I don't get print time every day (or even every weekend) and will start wearing a mask. (Not sure which kind, but the hubs works with asbestos and other noxious things and bought the mask for me.) Any advice would appreciated, thanks a lot!

toddler + pregnant + basement + plastisol inks = why risk it?

you should seriously consider an air make-up unit (extraction fan and fresh air fan),
even water-based has volatile organics that are released upon heating
a mask only helps you until you remove it, and the fumes remain to be inhaled by the household

or even better get a cutter and do vinyl (lots of vinyls out there okeo-tek 100 and cpsia certified)

Agreed- but was hoping for a low odor plastisol. Wasn't sure if it existed. The idea is to get the inks to be ready when I get back to it. Suggestions on vinyl? I don't have a lot of money to buy a plotter or press right now. I was thinking hand cutting vinyl, but that could get time consuming.
