IPAD DOCK A COT NO-NO

The Mercury - - METRO -

LON­DON: A lux­ury nurs­ery fur­ni­ture com­pany has cre­ated the world’s first cot with an iPad dock, prompt­ing hor­ror from child psy­chol­o­gists and sleep ex­perts.

Gary Tay­lor, 35, de­signed the £2 000 (R37 000) ma­hogany cot with a holder for the tablet af­ter strug­gling to get his 9-month-old daugh­ter Graysie to sleep.

The busi­ness­man and his wife use white noise apps to help get Graysie to sleep.

But Dr Anna Joyce, who spe­cialises in chil­dren’s sleep, warned that the blue light emit­ted from screens blocks the nat­u­ral re­lease of mela­tonin, which helps pro­mote sleep. | Daily Mail
