The joy of becoming a parent is incomparable, but comes with the worry of of the baby’s well-being, especially during those moments when a parent is not able to directly supervise the newborn. This very reasonable fear inspired the creation of baby monitors. Today’s market is saturated with varieties of systems that offer more than just audible and visual monitoring, but tracking of baby’s temperature, movement, breathing and more. However, the majority of these tools comes with the high price of exposing babies to electromagnetic radiation. Consumers are not informed of the kinds of electromagnetic fields that the infant is exposed to while the monitor is on, nor the potential biological effects of that exposure. This course will provide you with all the information you need with which to make wise choices.
Topics include types of monitors, connections systems (wired versus wireless), types of radiation emitted, research on health effects, how to minimize undesirable radiation.
