    How old?

    Advertisements
    How old was your baby when you started showing them the Baby Einstein series? I'm thinking about letting Teddy watch Baby Mozart once a day. By no means do I intend to let the TV babysit him. He'll be three months in ten days.

    Please refrain from criticizing the TV idea outright; I'm aware of the various pros and cons out there, and really not in the mood to feel like a "bad mommy"

    Right away

    I'm a huge fan of putting something on, putting toys and puffs on her blanket, and letting her crawl around, play, and do her thing. She doesn't watch the TV the whole time, but she likes to part of the time. It's my sanity time-- I feel absolutely zero guilt for it

    ETA: Before she could move around, I'd put her down on her play mat a few feet away from the TV and put Baby Einstein on. Then when she got a bit older, I put her in the exersaucer, and now she's free moving.

    Ahhhhhhh I feel much better now, thanks guys! He is just cracking up at it, which I love. And I played Mozart for him on the piano throughout my entire pregnancy, so I like to think that the music soothes him

    I don't turn the tv on for dd but I will put on classical music for her. Mozart, Brahms, etc. She loves it.

    DH: Thank you. ME: For what, babe? DH: For being you.

    We started the Your Baby Can Read and Baby Einstein things as soon as he was old enough to look around and notice what was going on. I'd say that was around two months maybe? I hold him, talk to him, and play with him while these dvds are on, so it's not like I plop him down and let the tv babysit. He LOVES music, colors, sounds, etc. so it works for us.
    If you're comfortable with it, why not?

    I don't even know what that is

    I was a horrible mommy and my kids watch tv alot, but it's more of a background thing while they are playing dolls and coloring and having tea parties.

    ODD started watching Your Baby Can Read at around 4 months. She's learned ALOT over time from watching it and NickJr. YDD has never been interested in TV or sat still long enough to watch. Which just goes to show you that every child is different. We usually have the TV on NickJr for background noise and they occasionally stop playing and watch something that interests them. Don't feel bad about it. We all have to do what we have to do to keep our sanity. None of us are perfect parents by any means, so don't stress about it.
