Now… I have learn something from Lena. I actually sign up for it’s newsletter. And, this is something I want to share with you:

New study finds baby DVDs and Videos may hinder infant language development

Rather than helping babies, the over-use of such productions actually may slow down infants eight to 16 months of age when it comes to acquiring vocabulary, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital Research Institute.

Frankly, I think it’s quite true as my girl is always on Brainy baby, Barney and  Baby Einstein.  And I felt she has been bubbling for too long. Her vocabulary is quite poor. However, She learned lots of actions and she is very friendly and responsive.

So, it’s up to you to decide weather you want your baby to expose to the educational DVDs like what I’ve did.

  1. janet Said,

    i subscribed to lena too. i believe that everything too much is not helpful. so i play dvd’s (barney, baby einstein, hi-5) like at least one hour per day only. your lizzy and my daughter are almost the same age i think.

    Yeah… moderate is the best! Welcome, Janet! Hope to see you more often. 😛
