Product Description

Product Description

The highest quality baby-soft cotton together with the reliable protection of RadiaShield® Fabric make this blanket a convenient and unobtrusive way to protect your child within against the risks of everyday radiation. Easily portable in your handbag, this blanket is ideal for both the home and the office. You’ll forget this breathable protector is even there while having the peace of mind of RadiaShield® protection. Belly Blanket Chic shields by neutralizing incoming electromagnetic waves, canceling out the ambient radiation and reducing your exposure and is recommended for daily use.

Product Description

Cell phones, laptops, mp3s, microwaves...unborn babies are exposed to a steady stream of everyday radiation, which has been proven to disrupt cell growth and dna replication. While the long-term effects of electromagnetic fields (emf) are unknown, organizations including the fcc and world health organization recommend taking precautions against overexposure. Here's the easy solution! drape the belly armor blanket over your baby bump, and block 99.9% of electromagnetic rays instantly. How's it work? the soft, cotton blanket is lined with high-tech radiashield(r), a conductive silver fabric with the same emf shielding properties as a 1/4" thick sheet of aluminum. Yet it's comfortable, breathable, and so discreet, no one will notice it (including you!). Fold the approximately 30" x 35" blanket up, and it will fit in a purse or laptop bag. It's even machine washable. Why take chances? imported. Very lightweight; won't overheat you we tested the belly armor blanket using multiple cell phones. After noting the strength of our phones' signals, we wrapped them in the belly armor blanket. After 30 seconds, each phone's signal either plunged or disappeared entirely in every instance. 100% pre-shrunk cotton, with a radiashield lining. Machine wash cold with similar colors. Air dry. (don't bleach, tumble dry, or iron.)

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading False Sense of Security - Does NOT Protect as Implied 9 Sep 2013
By Antonio Campos - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Grey|Verified Purchase
Written claims on product packaging:

"99.9% Shielding Effectiveness for radiation from: cell phones, laptops/computers, other electronic devices."

Desperately trying to find a way to protect our unborn child after recently learning that WiFi and cell signals are MICROWAVES, my wife and I found some comfort finding this product and reading that claim. I believe Belly Armor's 99.9% shielding effectiveness claim will give any regular person the impression that it blocks 99.9% of typical microwave (cellular and WiFi) signals. I myself am an electrical engineer, and although not specialized in RF, I fell for this claim as well. Having learned the hard way not to trust doctors, scientists, or anyone from the government without verifying things myself, I quickly went about trying to verify Belly Armor's claims and then try my own real-world tests.

Cell phone test: As detailed on a little card included with the package, I wrapped my old iPhone 3GS (AT&T GSM microwave network) within the belly blanket for 30 seconds, and quickly took it out to see the bars. Yes, the signal had reduced. But does that mean it blocks 99.9% of the microwave radiation? I went one step further to really find out:

I first connected my iPhone to my wife's iPhone (both AT&T GSM network), put mine on speakerphone, then fully wrapped it in the belly blanket, being sure to fold over (overlap) all the edges so no signal could escape out any "cracks". Instead of the call being dropped immediately, or even after a few seconds, I was able to maintain a reasonably clear speakerphone conversation with my wife right through this blanket (reasonably clear not because the signal was reduced, but because of the muffled sound of trying to speak via speakerphone through a decently thick blanket. Now I ask you, how is it possible to have this kind of conversation for 2 minutes (after which we gave up testing) if it "shields" 99.9% of the signal?

I went one more step. I next performed a speed test (data throughput test) on my iPhone via our home WiFi (old Netgear N-300 wireless router), then DOUBLE-wrapped this router within the belly blanket. I re-ran the test (cell data option turned off so that it could not be coming from the 3G network) and was able to get nearly exactly 50% data throughput at 10 feet distance. Now how could this be possible if this product is shielding these microwave signals 99.9%?

Now without having done these tests myself, we would have been using our microwave generators (iPhones) with a false sense of confidence and security, thinking we were fully shielding (99.9% is basically fully shielded wouldn't one think?) our unborn baby from these extremely dangerous pulsed scalar microwaves. CLEARLY THIS IS NOT THE CASE.

One comment another individual made on another review was that they used their fancy testing device and verified that there was a "massive reduction" in the signal. No details or specifics were given. Well here are real-world tests each and everyone of you can try yourselves with your own WiFi networks and phones to see if this product really delivers what you're expecting and needing.

To try to understand what the heck is happening, I first wrote to Belly Armor via their website, explaining what I had done and asking them to come clean and explain how and why this could happen. I did threaten to post my findings here on Amazon, and gave them 5 days to at least confirm receipt of my e-mail. No response. Okay, that's fine, we're returning this ineffective product touting extremely misleading claims for a refund. But there's no way we were not going to warn others of our findings and explain what they might try to verify this themselves.

Next, I carefully read the testing report from Belly Armor's website, and all of their claims. The light mesh silver shielding material used in the product is shown in a picture in the Independent product safety report available from their web site. It clearly shows a wide mesh with huge gaps in between the tiny threads of silver. In other words, if this was a screen door, you would basically see 1/4" gaps between the mesh, allowing quite a bit of whatever you're trying to shield through it. As with protective clothing made with silver nylon thread, if you get the cheaper 50% silver nylon mesh, you get a 50 db reduction, similar to what is supposedly achieved with this product. However, for more effective shielding that's more like "blocking" as what we want, you've got to go with the 2x more expensive 100% silver nylon design, which basically leaves no gaps through which the signal can pass. That is basically the way it made sense to me and how I understand it.

With any safety device of any kind, and most especially for our children that rely on us to know best, we think it's always best to verify claims, and do your own research and testing, if possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars As advertised 29 Mar 2011
By Polymath - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Grey|Verified Purchase
The blanket is very true to the color you see in the picture and lightweight enough so as not to overheat you in a warm environment (yet it does hold in enough warmth to provide a little extra comfort on an airplane). It is long enough to cover a full term pregnant belly and partially around the back of an average sized woman, but not much else. The blanket washes well and dries a bit quicker than expected (it is air dry ONLY) without fading or shrinkage. During the "cell phone test" the blanket was able to eliminate the signal from three different varieties of cell phones, so it does do as promised. The price seems to fit with the quality of the product as far as make and materials used (they use silver to create an EMF barrier), would recommend this product to anyone interested in limiting fetal exposure to EMFs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Item if pregnant or not! 5 Sep 2013
By K. Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Grey
I am an environmental engineer and while having my first child I was a bit nervous or protective against about everything. I found these and bought the blanket and the belly rap. They do work! And the belly rap was really nice to wear anyways, silky cool material felt good just as it. The cell phone test works, put your phone in it and call and there will be no record of the call. Makes you feel better about things. I used it later to rap around my little one when I wanted or around me to protect against computer use later on. I still use it. If you are using your computer on your lap like the picture, don't expect to be totally protected - you would need to encapsulate yourself in this material. I have seen the material for sale alone, but this is a really nice quality blanket. Very soft and nice looking. If you are more worried about protection I would recommend a grounding mat as well, I have not used one but understand that they work pretty nicely.
5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite pregnancy item 5 July 2014
By ChicagoShopIL - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Grey
Have had this since the start of my pregnancy and bring it with me everywhere. I use it when I am in bed (so many of us scroll through our phone in bed), sitting in front of our gigantic TV, and while I use my laptop or iPad. I also take it on flights with me to block some of other people's phones/laptops and the general radiation associated with flight and aircrafts. Does it "work?" Who knows. But so far I have a very happy healthy soon-to-be-born little one (I am in month 9), and this is something I will be gifting to my closest girlfriends who also live a very tech-heavy lifestyle.
5.0 out of 5 stars very easy to use, but after i bought it, i have never use it .lol 6 Feb 2014
