Common EMF Sources in Children’s Rooms & Nurseries


Common Sources of EMFs in Kid’s Rooms

12 Common EMF Sources Found
in Nurseries and Children’s Rooms

This section covers common EMF sources found in nurseries and children’s rooms.

These sources can be of particular importance due to the amount of time children spend sleeping in the rooms..

Some small changes here can really make a big difference in the amount of time and exposure levels children are subjected to.

With all our sections, we’ve included a recommended solution for most of these. Some of these outbound links may be affiliate links to help our mission of EMF education.


Baby Monitors

Baby monitors are commonly found in nurseries and the rooms of young children. The broadcasting monitors communicate with the receiving monitors via RF chips.

These are radio frequency fields that your children may be in close vicinity to for 10-12 hours a day. We recommend hardwiring your baby monitor, if possible.

Our guide to hardwiring your baby monitor will be out soon.


Wireless Cameras

Wireless cameras, as standalone devices or as part of a packaged baby monitoring device, are becoming more and more popular.

These emit RF fields and and the duration of exposure will be long due to the amount of time young children sleep.

A Low EMF Solution

There are several camera models where you can hardwire your connection. Our buying guide will be out soon.


Fans & White Noise Machines

Fans are popular choices for background white noise in children’s rooms to help them sleep.

Unfortunately, the motors in the fans can kick up sizeable magnetic fields.  These drop off quickly, but make sure that any fans you’re using aren’t too close to where the child is sleeping. Use a gaussmeter to be sure.

White noise machines are often ungrounded and unshielded and can have elevated AC electric fields as a result.

We recommend keeping these away from beds, as well. Use an electric field meter to measure the appropriate distance.

A Low EMF Solution

The Trifield TF2 has both a gaussmeter and an electric field meter.


Children’s Toys

Toys manufacturers are putting RF chips in more and more toys these days. Some of the functionality can be interesting, but, as a rule, we don’t recommend these in a low-EMF home.


A Low EMF Solution

When researching a product, do a search for the product name + wifi or bluetooth.

RF chipped toys will necessarily have batteries, too, so that often is a giveaway.


Baby Rockers

These may have elevated magnetic field levels from the rocking mechanism and elevated electric fields from the wiring. We recommend testing these with a gaussmeter and an electric field meter to get a good sense of what exposure your baby will be getting.

This is important as babies will often fall asleep in these devices for long periods of time.

Newer models may have radio frequency chips placed in them, as well, so be on the look out for that.

Various Electronics & Gadgets

This is a list of some other items sometimes found in nurseries or children’s rooms.


Bluetooth Projectors

These are used to smooth children and help put them to sleep.

These will have wi-fi or bluetooth capabilities, so find a model where you can turn these off or find a model without these functions.

If you use a projector, make sure it and it’s cord aren’t close to where the child sleeps. Double check with a gaussmeter and electric field meter.



Bluetooth Baby Health Monitors

These monitors are used to track babies heart rate and oxygen levels. It’s a novel idea, but you’re placing an RF emitting chip directly next to your baby.

If it’s not a medical necessity or a directive from a physician, perhaps it’s worth reconsidering it’s use.


Wi-fi Cribs

These include crib mounted cameras and other monitoring and entertainment devices. This will lead to elevated RF exposure levels for your child.

We would recommend hardwiring a camera in a withdrawn, but still visible position.


Bluetooth Diapers

It sounds like a practical joke, but these are apparently being rolled out soon.

Instead of using these and getting alerts on your phone when your baby has soiled itself, just use regular diapers and your nose.


Bluetooth Mobiles & Nursery Lights

Regular mobiles still work really well for calming babies and puts any concern about RF radiation to rest.

Get the battery powered mobile to ensure lower AC electric field levels.


Baby Sleep Solutions with Bluetooth

These are often combo night lights, sound machines and rising lights. Here’s an example.

The bluetooth functionality will produce RF fields while your baby sleeps and should be avoided for a low-EMF nursery.


Baby Feeding Systems with Wi-fi and Bluetooth

These provide information on the temperature, volume and feeding angles of the liquid in the bottle. It relays the information to an app on your phone via wi-fi.

As you may have guessed we’re going to recommend not using these unless directed to by a medical professional. Old-school bottles and testing the liquid temperature on your arm still works really well.

A Low EMF Solution

When possible, use the products and devices that don’t have RF chips.
