TV has a huge impact on baby. Please turn it off when eating!
Parents also found that he would be more honest, so they simply let him watch while eating, and sometimes even specially turn on the TV when the baby is eating. The baby’s mind is all on TV. He often doesn’t know when his stomach is full. He will eat too much, which will lead to obesity. At the same time, it will also affect his digestion and cause gastrointestinal dysfunction.
In addition, the American Journal of Pediatrics reported that television may over stimulate young children’s brain and change their developing brain structure. The study found that infants are often “hypnotized and confused” by television images; the brain of newborn infants develops rapidly in the first three years, so it is easy to be affected and “reprogrammed”. The longer the children watch TV, the more likely they are to have problems of inattention, behavior impulse and restlessness, and the more likely they are to be confused.
Coincidentally, the survey results recently released by the Japanese Academy of Pediatrics show that the longer children under 2 years old watch TV, the weaker their language expression ability. Children who watch TV for more than 4 hours a day have a much lower level of language development and expression ability than those who don’t watch TV. Even if children don’t watch TV directly, family members, especially mothers, also affect their language development. Infants feel and learn language in emotional communication with their parents. If parents watch TV for too long, they will reduce direct communication and contact with their children and affect their language development.
Therefore, the Japanese Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under 2 years old not watch too much TV, turn off the TV during breastfeeding and eating, and do not put the TV in the room where the children live.
