ok, I just wanted to let ya'll know about Yourbabycanread.com I recently purchased this for my 4,3 and 3 month old. We've been doing this for 2 weeks my 4 & 3 year olds can already recognize words like elephant, hi, arms up. It's really great, and my 3 month old coos at the animals on the video. It's a great system...I would totally recomend it!

I love that program! I started my daughter at 2 years old and its been over a year and she is reading words. I started her brother at 6 months old and he is 1 1/2 now and can recognize the words and say them. Its a great tool to use for early learning tools.

I started using this program with my son when he turned 6 months- we have been using it a month and he loves the dvds, books, and flashcards. we really enjoy doing it together. This is def a great product. I didnt have any coupons and i paid - 14.95 for the first month and 88 a month for 3 months after. this is very pricy but well worth it! i love it. You really get so much more than a book or 2 and some flashcards and a couple dvds. i got 5 sets of flashcards with pics that pull out, 10 plus books, 5 dvds and a singing dvd and more.

wow! Ladies everyone has their own method. You learn by repition regardless of age, or whether you buy your baby can read or make your own tools for learning. Myself, I have been wondering about the program, however I just can breakdown to make that purchase. My son is 15 months and knows to hand me the orange, red, blue or yellow block when I ask. He can tell you how old he is. His body parts, arms up, and several other things that I myself have worked with him on. As long as they are learning. And the thing about the memorization vs. the brain is not developed enough? The synapses in your babies brain will have more connection between birth and 3 years of age than after. But what works for some doesn't work for others this doesn't mean anyones method is wrong.

My parents bought this for our little girl when she was around 1 year. I would agree that she recognizes a lot of words, but she doesn't necessarily say them all. Also, in order to do the recommended amount of watching, it is supposed to be a couple times a day. We watch it usually once a day. About the cost... I think a brand new set is around $200+. Anyone want to confirm or correct the price?

It is an awesome program! My 3 yr old has been doing it for the past year and is reading well now! My 9 month old recognizes words. We point to a word like arm and she touches her arm! I recommend this to every parent!

I have been wondering about this as well. I am very tempted to buy it, my two year old is an absolute sponge and I think she might respond well to it. My question is, what is the cost, is it affordable? We aren't scraping the barrel, but finances are an issue for us right now, our rental property has been flooded twice by a neighboring property and has been empty for several months, between the abscence of rental income and the cost of repairing and remodeling, I weigh the cost of everything alot more carefully than I did 6 months ago.

there are some things a child just can not developmentally do before a certain age. a majority of children learn to read around 5. a small percentage learn around 3. before the age of three the brain is just not developed enough. flash cards are also not going to really get your child to develop any faster. babies and young children learn through play. so play with your child and read to them everyday. take a walk and show them a flower, let them touch and smell it. engage their senses.

Like some of you I too have wondered about this product. I have a 3 year old, whom I have been trying to teach things like letter recognition, (skills needed for reading). He is very smart, but very stuborn. My oldest son was our fast learner. He didnt start reading until he was four though. But he just had such a love for learning. I got to where I was obsessed with teaching him. He was always way ahead of kids his age. Because I was soo obsessed with him learning I read and researched everything I could get my hands on about child development, early learning, teaching your child to read, the mozart effect, etc. I also read that most children will actually catch up with the "early learners". Of course being the mother of a "genius", I didnt want to believe that. I vowed my son would stay way ahead of all the other kids in school. He is in the third garade now and he is still very smart. He is great at math and reading. But (dont tell anyone), there are a few kids in his class that are on a higher level of reading, maybe math too. I have said all this to say: If you can afford these products I dont think they will hurt your child, if they make you feel better and your not taking grocery money or your child's tuition money then go ahead and buy it. But please don't stess out over your 18 month old baby being iliterate. Also please don't put so much presssure on your children. Stress can actually cause them to learn at a slower pace. Let them explore their world, play, make messes. Also read to them very often, talk, play with with them as much as possible. Make them want to learn, make it fun!

i saw that and want to get it, my two year old is pretty good at reading certain things but i think this will help along with my 2 month old when he gets old enough to talk.

I have been showing it to my 7 month old for 3 months now. She gets so excited when the song starts up, and she really pays attention. I'll found out in the next few months if it was worth the money..

this system has been proven not to work. your kid can't actually read. just as they memorize a picture of a circle and then can go get a ball, they view the word as a picture and associate it with an object. give them a book. i'm guessing they can't read it. and if you were to give them a book with the words they have memorized they will say the words but have no comprehension of what they are saying. the best way to teach your children how to read is to read to them everyday. sorry ladies, it's a scam.

Lame, lame, lame ... my kid can do that without me having to send $200 or more on some flash cards that I can get at Walmart for a dollar.

I too am using the program with my 8 month old. And boy, I can see the results now. He will put his arms up, wave hi. And now, when I show him the "dog" flashcard, he looks around for our dog, Ally. (without even seeing the picture!)

I saw this on TV too and it was really eye catching but then I thought about it and it's no different then flash cards. This is a total waste of money and I have tons of books that I bought for a $1 or $5-$15 that are full of pictures, colors shapes, etc... my kid loves them all. Nathan is one and knows some sign languages from the book I bought at Babies"R"Us for $10. He is already attempting to write and plays with letters all the time handing them to me to sound them out. Yourbabycanread is too expensive and a total scam in my opintion. Just buy some flash cards with letters and pictures for $5 at Walmart and spend some time showing them to your kid. Oh, and my one year old can pick out an elephant and other animals too so I guess by 3 or 4 years he should be reading full speed. Just a thought.

First of all, let me start by saying that I'm glad this program is working so well for all of you! I was considering buying it when my son was younger but then I started thinking about how we're told that it's not good for babies under 2 to watch tv at all and I decided not to get the program. I figured, if it's not good to watch tv until age 2, then that includes "educational" tv as well. I'm not bashing the program or anything, so don't get me wrong. I just wanted to put that out there. Except for the half hour of Wiggles my son watches after his nap (he's 19 months old), he doesn't watch tv and probably won't until well after 2. Just my opinion. Congrats on all the success ladies :)

we love it also we bought it as our daughters christmas present and she watches the videos every morning and when we go out to run errands on the dvd player in the car. she recognizes sooo many words and does all the motions and loves to do her flash cards. If you ask her to find words on a page she can do that too! This product is amazing...we are sooo glad we purchased it!!!

I totally agree with you as well. I love the program. My daughter loves it. And the asian boy on that video, I happen to have met his father. They live in Orange County, CA. He was the physical therapist at the chiropractor office my sisters were going to. At 3weeks old, his son, I believe it's Dylan, had surgery. They were told by the doctors that his learning might be delayed, so his wife, the beautiful Asian lady on the infomercial, was searching for ways to help develop his brain. At 2 years old, Dylan is reading at a 2nd grade level. I met Dean when I was 34 weeks preggo and I've been seeing that infomercial. My mom bought Skarlett the program as well as the Spanish version and I am so glad she did! On top of that, Skarlett is also watching BabySigningTime. She loves it all! :)

I don't know if it comes in other languages or not. But if you coupled it with Muzzy it might be a good bilingual source...I have no IDEA or not.



It's not a scam, and my kids LOVE it!
