No Screen for First 2 Years of Life

This will be a really hard test. American Academy of Pediatrics recommends zero screen time for children under 2 years of age. Even all those “make your baby smart” videos are harmful for a developing brain of babies.

Our baby at 3 months is already fascinated by TV or any screen emitting light. When I am working from home, it is really hard not to turn on TV and let him be mesmerized with changing images on it.

But we will try our best to restrict TV/screen time for first 2 years of his life.
