Housecall for Health: Fussy Babies Get More TV Time
Some parents think plopping a crying kid in front of the TV provides a calming effect, but new research says it may do more harm than good.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
New research shows fussy babies are exposed to more television than infants who are less active. Data from the University of North Carolina shows TV is being used more often as a strategy to calm squirmy little ones, especially by low-income mothers.
The findings are controversial because many previous studies suggest babies should not watch TV at all, linking it to weight problems and developmental delays.
