Child Watch Tv
Yes: The american academy of pediatrics recommends that children under 2 years of age not watch any tv at all. Children over 2 years of age should be limited to 1-2 hours of quality programming per day. Your baby will be better off with direct interaction with you and others as the first 2 years are a very critical time for brain development and tv may only serve to get in the way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unanswered: Some studies point to an association, while other see no correlation. The american academy of pediatrics warns against excessive electronic media exposure, but not because of increased adhd, but because of increased aggressiveness in those exposed to too many hours of violent video games or media. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 2 month baby likes to watch tv, or baby clips on the ipad. Would it harm her vision if she watch at this age?
Not vision as much : As it delays acquisition of language & social communication, because it provides no reciprocal social interaction. The aap recommends no screen time till age 2 yrs. Talk to her with her face ~ 12" from yours; smile & mimic her good $ coos. Get down on the floor for tummy time play with her. Customize the aap's healthy child app for your baby's age. After 2 yrs., limit screen time to 2 hrs./day. ...Read more
Had a fright while watching tv for a split second got quite scared. Im pregnant can this cause harm to my baby?
Is it safe for newborn baby , 4 month-old to watch television and how far should keep the distance between baby and tv? Thanks
Sure it's safe, but: It won't hurt the baby now, but the more time children spend parked in front of a tv isn't good for them. It's never too early to start reading to them and letting older kids entertain themselves. There is a reason they call tvs "idiot boxes." good night moon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi. My 5 n half months old baby have spider vein on her top eye lid. Plz tell me whether its normal or not? Sometimes she watch tv.
Hemangiomas: Capillary hemangiomas are quite common in young babies. They are usually present at birth at the nape of the neck and/or over the eyelids, are flat, and increase in redness when crying. These are not dangerous and generally fade away after several months. New lesions, those that bulge out or cause restriction in movement should be evaluated by a physician and/or dermatologist. ...Read more
Is it bad for my 11 week old baby to watch tv? He would cry and when I put him infront of the tv it calms him. he loves wathing tv. Is it bad for him? He makes sounds while watching tv and get very serious. Gums are itching hands always in mouth
More or less: How long will use this crutch ? Why not buy a snuglee and strap the kid to your chest so s/he can enjoy their day with you rather than just be impressed by changing lights & sounds? Our research shows more than 2 hours a day of any such stimulus translates into attention problems in kids. It requires creative adult thinking to entertain a baby but that is what they need. ...Read more
When I should let my child learn foreign language? What is the best way for him to learn? TV or video is helpful? When should I expose him it? Thanks
As infant & talk: The earlier you can expose child to the second language, the better. The best way for the infant to learn it is to have someone speak it to him. Studies on language development show that the infants are watching our lips and mouths as newborns to try and emulate how we make our words. Blind children lag behind in speech because they are not able to see the lips/mouth. direct speech is best! ...Read more

No problem: This does not pass the common sense test. If you rely on the talking heads on tv for medical information you will be miss lead the majority of the time.Much of what they do and say is primarily for ratings/stirring up controversy/adding viewers. It often relies on repeating the unfounded pronouncements of others cited in interviews rather than data from real research. ...Read more
Yes: Most pediatricians would recommend no tv or videos at all under age two. I personally don't recommend any tv for school age children during the school week (it is a distraction from homework and reading). There is a strong link between watching tv/playing video games and gaining weight. On weekends 1-2 hours a day is probably ok. ...Read more
