Avoid Using a Baby Monitor
Many parents keep their newborn baby in their bedroom at night for easier feedings and diaper changes. Without realizing it, these parents are preventing exposure of an environmental toxin that many babies are exposed to every night in their own bedroom and crib. Baby monitors, usually put in the crib or right next to it, emit electromagnetic currents that can be harmful to baby's sensitive brain development. Just Google "emfs and baby monitors" and you can learn more about baby monitor use and changes you might want to make. If I had to do it all over, I would again keep my newborn in my bedroom where a baby monitor would not be necessary. And if at some point my baby was moved to his or her own room to sleep, any baby monitor used would be placed across the room and not so close to the crib. You can learn more about other electronic products and how to improve your entire house environment by googling "emf dangers" or "electrosmog."
