How long did you wait before introducing electronics to your baby? How long do you let them watch TV!?

My son is 11 months and has no interest in phones or tv. Maybe watches for 10 minutes a day

We don't allow our 16 month old to use tablets or phones but we do turn on PBS kids for a couple shows a day, like Sesame Street or Daniel Tiger.

My son is 11 months and barely even cares about TV he maybe watches 10 minutes a day. He also does not  ever play with my phone or iPad or anything. He does always want to touch my laptop when I am doing homework and is mostly curious with it.

I am a work from home mom. My first son got a tablet at 1 loaded with only educational games and stuff. He used it all of the time. By 4 he could spell and read up to 7 letter words. He is most likely going to be skipping 2nd grade next year because his tabby time was learning time. 

I agree with Mel and can also say that it depends on if you work from home or not.  Sometimes we need kids to have distractions or breaks from play or one on one time with parents, BUT ensuring that the technology piece will benefit them is really important.

I think introducing children to electronics/TV is NOT a bad thing. It just has to be used in moderation.  My kids get 1 hour all day on ipads or tv. I use that time to send quick emails or phone calls or make dinner (I work from home).

I think it's wonderful to introduce your little one to technology. My son used his kindle fire at 18 months and was able to use it on his own in only a few short weeks. it was amazing!

I didn't know I should limit their screen time. What's wrong with screen time?

My girl is 4, and she doesn't like screen time at all. She'd rather be outside.

My babies are 3 and 5, and they get very little screen time. No screens in the car, no morning tv, either. We watch a little television in the evening as a family, so we can give them context.

I had a kindle that play videos for long car rides at a young age but I didn't let my child play with electronic devices until two. However, even now it is very very little time and it's always a puzzle or learning exercise.

My kids are 2 and 4 and they don't have electronics. They're allowed to look at family pictures/video clips on my phone on special occasions (they like to watch my wedding video). They're allowed to watch tv in the mornings for a little and in the evenings to wake up and decompress... this also helps me to get a few things done (dinner prepped, etc.). BUT they have to watch it on the tv in our family room, so that I can chime in and make sure they're not zombies... I ask them simple questions such as "how do you think that made her feel" or "oh no, whats going to happen next" just to easy my mommy brain and ensure their minds are working a little!!

I would say if you have to introduce a device for them to actually use on their own (mostly) it would have to be to show a video that is of course appropriate and in a situation where it's the last resort.

No screen time until after 2 years old!
