Baby and The iPad

Oct 07, 2013 | All, Family | 5 Comments

Hi Everyone

I wanted to take a moment to address my feelings on babies and ipads/tablets. Im going to go ahead and get straight to the point.  I LOVE the ipad for Riley, in moderation of course. If i’m in a tough situation like shopping at grocery store and she just isn’t in a patient mood that day I can whip out the ipad and get a good 15-20 mins to get all of my groceries picked out, bagged up and in the car. If we’re driving or flying for a long period of time she can be easily entertained with it. As long as it’s not an everyday thing, I’m okay with it. Completely satisfied with it actually. I get peace knowing that with today’s technology she’s not just watching a movie on her tablet, she’s learning on an alphabet app, or figuring out where her nose is with another.The possibilites are endless. I love that she can learn even when we’re on the move. Again, I said in moderation. I do believe that outside time and hands on play time is way more important for her development than any app on her ipad. How do you feel about “Baby and The iPad”? Let  me know your thoughts in the comment box below!

Thanks guys and Happy Monday!

  1. Moderation is the key word here. It freaks me out to see little kids running around with an iPAD 24/7 but i do agree that it is certainly not only a useful tool for the kids as well as the parents! what apps do you recommend Ayesha?

  2. My son is almost 15 months (I think Riley is about that age?) anyways i would love to have this as an option but I haven’t been able to find an app that entertains him for more than three seconds. What are Riley’s favorites?

  3. I was pretty pleased to find this website. I need to to thank you for your time for this fantastic read!! I definitely liked every part of it and i also have you saved to fav to check out new things on your website.

  4. I think the iPad is a life saver in situations such as the plane or long car rides. But I also let my son play on the iPad every so often in moderation (we do live in Silicon Valley after all). He LOVES the disneyland app (he will be two in January) .

  5. Doctors actually say no electronics till about 3 ish. I’m ok with ipad for kids once in a while, but I think that once the kids get addicted that’s another issue
