My husband and I disagree about screen time for our babies. He likes to turn on the TV on the weekends to watch the news or mindless TV when the babies are playing with us. I think this is unnecessary and possibly dangerous for their development.

He says it's just a bunch of lights like when we turn on some of their toys with blinking lights.

Does anyone have a good article or research that is concise but explains why babies don't need to watch TV?

They now crane their necks to see it even when I face them away and try to play with them.
