Super baby needs a super movie

Okay so I am wondering if there are any educational videos/movies/dvd sets for a baby as young as 3 months, other than the Baby Einstein series. We already have Your Baby Can Read, but I remember seeing a documentary about  how babys learn, and am wondering if any of you know of any videos that cater to not only entertaining a baby, but also teaching him and enriching his brain while it develops. Thank you!

We used Bilingual baby videos for our first, but they need to be a bit older for that. :-) Bump!

I think time for baby to interact w/ parents is a more valuable learning tool than videos. I don't believe in putting videos on for baby to teach them. (BTW, baby Einstein was sued for false claims of their videos teahcing babies and people were rewarded refunds on their videos)

well I dont work, DF does, so I'm at home with him all day. I love spending time with him, we play and dance and sing and read books and nap together, hes my little mini me haha, but sometimes he seems tired of me and just wants to play independently. He has a jumper but he is only 3 months old so other than that not much to play with. I dont want him to watch tv unless hes learning something, unless its benefiting him in some way. and i never knew about the baby einstein thing! good thing we didnt buy it haha

we are wanting to buy one of those playmats with all the toys attatched to it. he hasnt mastered grabbing things on purpose yet, and if i put something in his hand he usually just drops it soon after, but we are getting there ;]
