Learning

How do you get your baby to learn..is it ok to watch learning programs on tv or phone or iPad..I’m not a big fan but my baby likes to watch A B C’s and Elmo here and there...not all day. He is usually playing with toys...But what are things you can do that can teach them..what activities can you do with a 1yr old and help them progress in talking more ...

While playing just chat with them and when they babble imagine you are having a conversation. I say things like “oh is that how you do it?” Or pick up a block and ask “what should I do with this yellow block?”

I think some tv is ok, especially if it’s educational like Sesame Street. If you don’t want them staring at a screen, play toddler music while they play. Talk to them, narrate what you’re doing or just have a conversation with them. Books books books! Also, just exposing them to the world is hugely educational for them, even just taking them with you to run errands. And don’t stress if they’re not talking. Apparently I didn’t talk till I was 2.

I like those learning cards - color, number letters and shapes. Reading. I limit tv for my baby bc I don't want him to like it and enjoy it more than reading or playing with his toys. My baby is 13 months and at one point in the morning he'd come and give me a remote control to turn on the TV after that I knew he was having too much TV so I stopped and turned on music.

I lm loving the idea of learning cards.. it’s a good way to show them those cards everyday to not only learn but so it can get stuck in in there head and they can remember from the pictures....

The best way to help them talk is to talk to them as much as possible. Do it When your changing his clothes, explain what you’re doing name different things the colors, the amounts. When cooking talk to your baby, even when you’re just bucking him into the car seat. Talk talk talk and when your baby says something respond and ask them questions. Reading also helps and pointing things out in picture books. I’m not a big fan of sitting a kid that young in front of a screen or with a tablet. A lot of research shows that too much screen time negatively affects children.
