which poly for new unfinished oak floors

Just laid down some unfinished red oak flooring in my basement (after trenching and waterproofing around the foundation) and I'm looking to put some polyurethane down over the weekend. I was going to go with the super fast drying oil-based polyurethane. We have a baby in the house now, so I'm wondering do I have the wife/baby stay out of the house over the weekend or at least stay on the top floor or is the water-based option better?

The poly smells real bad. Just had it done.

I used bona traffic in my foyer and am very happy with it. I wish they had used it in the kitchen now. The finish seems to be not as hard in there. It's super easy to apply and the odor is nothing compared to oil based products.

I am just a novice, so your mileage may vary.
