New AAP Media Guidelines for Babies and Toddlers

According to a press release by the American Academy of Pediatrics (http://www.aap.org/pressroom/mediaunder2.pdf)- babies and infants under 2 should watch absolutely no media. Their suggestion is that babies and toddlers learn more from play than from tv. Do they think this is news to us? With Nick Jr. marketing itself directly to the pre-school crowd- this is the group that I would be more concerned about. Yet, this new press release seems to have really upset some people. Do you worry about your child’s media intake?
