    I am not 100% sure to be honest, I know you are not meant to use them for more than a few minutes at a time though - think somebody on here told me it can irritate babies ears?

    I haven't used mine much since I started getting kicks but before that I used it once or twice a week for 5 mins

    I wouldn't worry too much, maybe just try to use it a max of once a day? xx

    Research is still being done into repeated use of and exposure to ultrasound. Ultrasound itself is generally safe though. I've not heard of it causing baby distress.
