Media Tips for Babies and Toddlers, from Common Sense Media

A (very) brief article on Common Sense Media about the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendation re. babies and screentime. Also includes link to results of a survey done by Common Sense entitled Zero to Eight: Children’s Media Use in America.

Highlights:

No screen time for babies under 2. The Real World is still the best teacher!
