Digital picture frames = screen time?

I thought of using our digital photo frame for LO as he loves light and screens but it isn't TV. I figured in the long run it would help him to learn relatives' faces. However my husband thinks it's screen time, which would melt his brain and lead to a life of crime. :p We're probably over thinking this and I'm really not that opposed to screen time. Any thoughts?

Re: Digital picture frames = screen time?

  • I don't think it counts of screen time. the concern with the television is the fast moving images. just looking at pictures on your phone or digital picture frame won't have the same impact -- at least that's what I tell myself.

  • I would count that as screen time as the images move on their own.

  • Thanks for the feedback. Hm, maybe we'll just use it occasionally. :)

  • My kid was watching Roseanne today. The Halloween episodes.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the digital photo frame. It's the 21st century version of a baby's first photo album.

  • I'm just sitting here waiting for my baby's brain to melt out of her ears and for her to become old enough to start robbing banks or whatever this "life of crime" equals.  I can only hope that she will make lots of money to pay for our fancy nursing home lifestyle before being locked up.

  • My guy has watched 2 football games today. I think as long as you're doing other mentally stimulating/ educational things a bit of tv isn't bad.

    My pediatrician actually said that watching football was ok bc it was a "family activity" and we all watch together. She said that obviously just sticking LO in fri tog the TV to get a moments piece is a no no at this point but if the family is watching football together and talking and hanging out all day Sunday it's nbd...
  • My baby is really entranced with watching football with Daddy.  Glad to see he's not the only one!

    He was also watching daddy play the PS4 yesterday.

  • Yea our DD watches Henry Hugglemonster with her Daddy while he eats breakfast before work. It's adorable. I watched plenty of TV as a kid and I managed to survive.
