My 9-month-old has been watching them since he was 2 months old.  He responded really well to them, so we kept putting them on.  He watches one a day now--perfect length of time for me to take a shower.

We've been doing it once a day usually in the evenings since she was 4 months old.  I put one on right after she has her dinner, and after it's over it's bath, books, bottle bed.  I love them.

I am the same; she started to really enjoy them at about 3-4 months. She now gets one a day before her evening bath. She adores the music and the puppets.

AK started to pay attention to he videos when she was around 8 months old.

The only bad thing is that now she tries to imitate a puppet in one of the videos and now she shakes her head *all* the time  :P

Hi! As a mother of a spirited boy I understand that sometimes you really need your baby to be quiet and relaxed. However, i don't think tv is a good idea at this age. It has bad consequences both in short and long term. It could even increase the probabilities of depeloping attention disorder syndrome.

"Until more research is done about the effects of TV on very young children, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) does not recommend television for children younger than two years of age."

hi,
My ds loves them and has been watching them since 5 months(wish I knew about them sooner)
He watches one when I find he is getting fussy not from just being tired but more so just needs a break or quite time.  If he fusses though it then we shut it off, but mostly he loves them and is good to go again after.
Again, I think they are great :)

My dd has been watching since she was a year old, she got a box set (from Costco) for her birthday. It is so cute to watch her get up and dance with the music everytime the video is on. I would recommend any of the ones with animals in them, at least those are the ones the my dd loves, the others don't keep her attention as much, but she still likes to watch them. Do you know someone who you could borrow a video from, so that way you could see for yourself if your dd likes it?

I bought the baby mozart dvd last month for my dd. When I first watched it, I regretted spending the money as dd ignored it. But the next time put it on she didn't move! She laughed at the different things on the screen and danced to the music. It's useful for when she's tired but it's too early for her nap as she'll sit on my knee watching it and be very relaxed. We've watched it about once or twice a week and I sit with her, telling her about the things she is seeing.

btw dd is 10 1/2 months old

Will has been watching them since he was about 4 months and he loves them. He watches them for a short while as part of bedtime wind down and when his main meal is going down.

My DD started watching them when she was 10 months old (perfect for a quick shower)! I will start showing them to DS at around 10 months. Unfortunately he seems to watch more TV than DD as a baby. Our house is just more chaotic now.

Today I attempted to cut dd's nails whilst watching Baby Mozart and she let me! This has never happened before and thought it was worth trying to do it when she was so engrossed in the TV. Just thought I'd share.

My lo has been watching them from 2 months and now has a different one for every day of the week (highly recommend Monet, my lo loves it!) I incorporate it into his bedtime routine and thats when DH and I eat.  He gets excited now when he sees the Caterpiller come on screen! 

I don't think a little TV hurts, some people think its the devil, I just see it as another way for him to learn.

wow! after reading this thread, I'm going to get a DVD as soon as I can... I had heard about Baby Einstein, but thought my DS was too small for it (3 months). I sometimes let him watch cartoons on TV while I have my lunch and he just sits there loving the colours and action...
Thanks!

Just wanted to see if anyone elses lo smiles and laughs at the first when that catapiler goes across the screen.  My lo just loves him, he can be crying and he sees that catapiler and hes just in heaven :)
