  • i LOVE baby einstein! it's wonderful for background noise and the music is so lovely! a 6 month old might not pay too much attention to it, but it is educational imo!

  • I'm all for classical music - in fact I play CDs of Bach, Mozart, and others all the time; and for a short time every once in a while DVDs are invaluable for keeping my 11 month old busy when nothing else will so I can finish dinner, fold a load of laundry, etc, but I don't think it's a good thing for a baby to learn to watch tv as a habit this early.

  • the music, flash cards and books sure. but NOT the videos.

    my youngest has seizures and her neurologist said that a leading cause of seizures in small children these days is tv and videos especially the baby einstein ones - the TVs are so much bigger and clearer now than ever before. and the einstein videos are so fast paced and bright that its triggering seizures by overstimulating the brain. when the brain gets overloaded sometimes its effect is a seizure - the neurons go haywire and don't know what to do (kind of like a panic button)
