Enhancing Baby's Sleep: The Impact of WIFI around babies.

Why we don’t use Wi-Fi.

Here at Glow Dreaming, the safety and wellbeing of your little one is always our highest priority, which is why we always do extensive research on everything we know will eventually end up in your hands and around your children.

This leads us to the topic of WIFI, and why we’ve decided to protect your children by NOT using it in our sleep aid.


Let’s explore the potential impact of WIFI on your little one.


Crafting a Tranquil Sleep Environment:

While we appreciate the convenience of wireless technology, it's worth considering the impact of electromagnetic radiation, which some studies suggest may have subtle effects, particularly in developing bubs.

Infants, in their delicate developmental stage, are uniquely vulnerable. Their thin skulls, developing brains, and rapid cellular growth may make them more susceptible to the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from Wi-Fi. With the scientific community still unravelling these impacts, it’s crucial for parents to take proactive protective measures.


France's Bold Move Against Wi-Fi in Nurseries:

Responding to these concerns, France, in 2015, enacted a law that prohibits Wi-Fi in nurseries and childcare centres for children under six. This decisive action, based on potential long-term health risks of EMF exposure, serves as a stark reminder of the need for heightened vigilance in protecting our youngest.

A range of other countries around the world are introducing restrictions on Wi-Fi in environments with young children, signalling a worldwide shift towards prioritising children's health in the face of growing technological omnipresence.


Preserving Uninterrupted Rest:

Babies thrive on undisturbed, deep sleep cycles crucial for their growth and development. By minimising exposure to WiFi during sleep, you create an environment where your little one can rest without potential disruptions, fostering the restorative benefits of a good night's sleep.


Supporting Developing Systems:

In the midst of rapid growth, maintaining a balanced environment becomes crucial. Research hints that minimising exposure to WiFi may assist in supporting developing nervous systems, contributing to a harmonious growth process.


Safety of Using Bluetooth:

In the realm of wireless connectivity, Bluetooth is often a popular choice. Compared to WiFi, Bluetooth operates on lower power and shorter ranges. This can be advantageous for baby monitors or other devices, as it reduces the overall exposure to electromagnetic fields.


A Safer Alternative: The Glow Sleep Easy

The Glow Sleep Easy is more than just a sleep aid; it's a commitment to your child's safety. Designed from the ground up, this innovative device uses Bluetooth, a safer alternative to constant Wi-Fi exposure, ensuring a healthier environment for your baby. It's not just about better sleep—it's about providing peace of mind and protection for your little one.


Essential Precautions for Parents

As parents, safeguarding your child’s health means taking definitive action:

• Eliminate Wi-Fi Risks: Remove Wi-Fi-connected devices from near your baby’s nursery to reduce EMF exposure.

• Opt for Wired Connections: Limit wireless technology in favour of wired alternatives in your home.

• Distance and Control: Keep Wi-Fi routers and devices at a distance from your baby's play and sleep areas and turn off the router when not in use.
