I know AAP recommends no screen time below 2 years, and we try to follow that. Do these count as screen time for my 15 month old son?
- We take a selfie, or a regular photo of him and he comes to check out the photo on the screen.
- Video call with relatives/ watching a short video of himself on the phone
- Checking out my laptop screen as I work, for not longer than 5 mins. (Screens are mostly boring, its just code or text, no fast moving frames)
- He plays with our phones sometimes while they're locked. My phone has nothing but numbers on lock screen. My husband's phone has notifications that go up and down on dragging, which he has figured out. We don't use the phones, even locked, as distractions or baby sitters. We're right there with him.
