Is it bad for a baby to be put into an incubator for a month?
No. Quite often, babies are born with health problems that require they be placed in an incubator. Depending on the baby's condition, they may be in the incubator for only a day or two, or even for a few months. It all just depends on each baby and the health problems they have. But a doctor will not have a baby placed in an incubator unless it is necessary.

Who is the inventor of the incubator?
Answer The inventor of the incubator was a Philippine pediatrician who is Fe Del Mundo. Answer The nursery incubator for premature infants was invented by Alexandre Lion, in France, in 1891. Fe Del Mundo (born November 27, 1911) was an astonishing woman, one of the most noteworthy medical doctors in history, and well worth studying. But she was not the original inventor of the incubator. Among her other achievements, she invented an incubator made of bamboo that could be used in rural areas without electric power. (The egg incubator was invented by Lyman Byce and Isaac Dias, in Petaluma, California. The patent was granted on June 2, 1885.)
