Plus my kids both ADORE books. My 8 month old walked away from toys and everything when she seen me pick up my new book yesterday, she wanted me to read it to her lol so I don’t worry about negative effects or anything cause they’ll sit there and read in the same room as the blaring tv 🤷♀️
We leave the tv on all day but it’s mostly background noise, the kids only pay attention to it maybe 3-4 minutes at a time. I’ll occasionally put my youngest in her bouncer exersaucer thing and put on bubble guppies for an episode or two to get some cleaning done. We homeschool tho so we watch a ton of different documentaries and educational videos so screen time is 100% allowed in our house, and we’re soon getting a tablet for the car for them to have movies and games when we take long road trips (family all lives a minimum of 5 hours away- that’s a long time bored for an 8 year old and 8 month old)
My daughter is 21 months old and I allow her to watch educational videos with me as we sing and dance and learn Together she can also watch a movie before bed but there is breaks throughout the day to let her read with mommy practice our ABC and counting and playing with educational toys to learn I find it very important to encourage books and learning as much as possible and I love that my baby will walk away from a TV to read a book with mommy so yeah restrictions are a must in my house hold but all mom's know what's best for their little one and not all babies are alike their special.

We leave my daughters tv running and it’s typically background noise. Like she’s currently wrestling with my husband and her tv is on. The phone though, I give it to her only when she behaves and it’s not fully charged... so when it dies she’s knows that time is over.
Studies apparently show kids who learn to use them under age of three-two, grow up with anxiety and depression. I don’t know a lot about it but it’s a worth a look up. I only have a 8 month so I don’t know a lot about that yet, but I say with good games to learn a hour doesn’t hurt a day. Due to having so many nieces and nephews
