better to avoid

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
It is better to avoid keeping XXXXXXX phone near your baby.
Many studies have reported variable results in XXXXXXX radiation.
The nearer the phone, lower the signal, less battery all these factors lead to more radiation.
Not only XXXXXXX avoid other gadgets like tablets, laptops etc.
These too are not good for your newborn.
Best companions: soft toys, dangling balls, rotating objects.
Avoid TV too.
Wishing your child good health.
Regards
Dr Arun
