Hello - I discovered the Mumsnet phone app a few weeks ago (I have a 6 week old baby) and my baby loves the nursery rhymes and white noise. I have used these to help him calm down and get to sleep. The white noise has an instant effect. I am now worrying though that I shouldn't really expose a baby to the mobile phone?
The research on children probably has not been done. But recent analysis has shown that mobile appear to not be affecting our rates of brain cancer and the like. If it is going to gnaw at you though stop doing it and find a white noise cd. You will not have done any harm using it on one or two occassions.
Thanks - yes, I stopped using it a few days ago. I only used it over a few weeks and not close to his head for too long so I'm sure it's OK. I guess if there was any long term affects it would have to be for a considerable amount of time?
