Hi All!!



I'd love to know what other babies like watching on the TV....

My Thomas loves In the Night Garden, Fimbles, Teletubbies and Space Pirates. But he also loves watching the Paul O'Grady Show!! It's quite funny, i'm sure it's down to the camera angle because Tom sits watching it and talking back to Paul O'Grady!! He seems to love Philip Schofield too which is quite odd because i had a huge crush on him when i was younger lol.

He's recently got into Deal or No Deal and goes mad when everyone starts clapping and jumping around hehe.

I don't like to put him infront of the TV unless i'm there with him talking to him about whatever we're watching. I find watching his face far more entertaining than the TV when he's watching it though lol.

Happy Mummying!!

Have you heard of Baby Einstein? I am not sure if they really do help their learning abilities but my son is so into Baby Einstein...his favorite is Baby Shakespeare. He also loves Dora the Explorer. I have been thinking about getting Baby First channel..we have onDemand thing and you have to pay Baby First channel monthly. I heard it was $4.95 a month...I could be wrong.

My Elliott likes to watch SpongeBob SquarePants - - since that's what his big brother chooses. I am addicted to Dancing with the Stars and he likes to watch the pretty people dancing (I think the music get's his attention as well)

Remember that studies show whatever the people conducting the studies want them to show - it all depends on what results they are looking for. I also watched a lot of television as a child, I am another mother who doesn't have her master's degree - but I don't think it did any harm...

they actually have a new study published that TV does not really hinder nor help a baby...so dont feel guilty....if you need to get something done, its ok to let the little one watch TV....but i wouldnt let it go more than 2hrs/day as the study suggests! Also, My daughter is SOOOO into NiHao KaiLan!!!!! Its like Crack to her! lol

LOL, Thomas will watch anything with his Daddy, he only sees him for about an hour a day during the week (if that!) and they'll sit and watch the Gadget Show or Top Gear and he'll be perfectly happy sat snuggled up on the sofa with Daddy. When it's just me and Thomas though he'll be much more fussy about what we can watch. If there is something on he doesn't want he'll just yell through the whole programme lol x

Just be careful with the TV watching. Television is extremely stimulating and it has been proven that it can harm the development of a baby's brain if they are exposed to regular TV before two years old. Future ADD problems is one of them.
It is funny how TV hold their attention though!

Yes, Thomas likes the news - again, i'm sure it's the camera angle because the news readers are looking directly at the camera (and so directly a the person watching the TV) and he thinks they are talking to him. He smiles away and chats back to them hehe. Do you watch your little one's face when they are watching the TV? I have missed out on so many programmes because i'm watching his reaction lol. Your son is gorgeous!! x

My son loves "Yo Gabba Gabba" and "Sesame Street". He also is very riveted by the news when I have it on in the evening and gets very concerned looking when they talk about the economy. It's so funny. :)
