i haven't seen any of their videos in a long time, but i used to be a nanny and i would put it on for the babies and they seemed to like it. the ones i saw were just still pictures on the screen so i thought they were kind of silly, he could look at a book and see the same things and i'd rather he play with books than watch tv.

if i have to do something (like shower or make dinner) and finn's being extra fussy i'll put his swing in front of sesame street. he flips out when the puppets are on the screen and starts laughing and screeching, then when it goes to a cartoon or whatever he sits there completely quiet and looks bored.

if he loves sesame street he will adore baby einstein....i guess the classical music and the black background intrigues them....its def. worth the money!

Sooo...ONi has never watched any .einstein and can say 2 words disciminatly(sp?).

She also points out "eye, nose, & mouth" on her and any other object with eyes, nose, & mouth! lol
Also, if you sing paty cake, she claps her hands and rolls them whe it's timefor "roll em up roll em up"!

I don't think sitting my child in front of a tv is very healthy. ALthough it's supposed to involve parental avtivity, I doubt that happens.

Before .Christmas, I was alll about the leap frog that went with the .t.v and they could pres the buttons and change the object on the .t.v. But I'm gla I didn't.

Especially with all the addicitons to television, video games, etc.

I mean, I personally, wouldn't spend my money on it. Just sitting there and playing with your baba can teach him/her just as well as a dvd.

She has 3 baby einstein dvds and a couple have babies. I know she doesn't like them from experience. She gets aggravated after only about 10 minutes, if she watches regular tv like a talk show or espn she'll watch it for about 30 minutes.

i dont do it to "teach" him anything. i know that no amount of tv is good for young children. i do it when i am desperate to get a shower or something like that....to get a break once in a while since i have the baby myself all the time. i dont think that is so terrible, to want a break sometimes.

I understand.

But there are women out there that will squat their babas in front of a tv more than the recommended time. Ya know?

I, personally, would never leave my baby in another room without myself or someone else. Ever. If the baby isn't in her bed sleeping, or in the bathrom with me, I won't shower.

I guess I'm just one of those people.

i dont agree with leaving them all day infront of the tv but there is nothing wrong with a 32 min video that is educational....they enjoy it....and i need some time to breath without him...
