hello sir/madam,
I am highly concerned with your baby's health. Babies are kept in incubator in order to maintain normal body temperature avoid hypothermia ie cold injury. Here, there are only heat radiation generated, which are totally harmless with no long term damage to the babies. So there are no chances that your baby has got the present condition because of any radiation of incubator in newborn age. Hope that your baby recovers soon. Thank you
