Here at We Love The Babies, we hope you had a wonderful holidayl season! Christmas doesn't just hurt the bank for parents of teenagers anymore! Nowadays, three year olds are asking for the same electronics as fifteen year olds.
Personally, my three year old Emma, has been asking for a tablet, for about six months now. Her cousin, who she is very fond of, got a tablet. Since then, every time I asked her what she wanted for Christmas, she would say,"Mommy I want a tablet." So we've been planning on getting her one for Christmas, and we did.
Ok, so I know some parents may be thinking
"What use does a three year old have with a tablet?"
They haves so many games for babies and toddlers in the app store! My cellphone has applications as well. So, when we downladed her a puzzle, and she amazed us, with what she could do! We decided she was ready.
"Are you afraid she's going to drop and break it?"
We have a system. She can use it as long as...
1. Her hands are cleaned first.
2. She sits with it on her lap on the couch.
3. Her littlest sister is taking a nap, or she can sit on her bed in her room.
That way she can't drop it, if it's on her lap and she's sitting. Protection plans are amazing as well.
"What about the other babies, are they going to fight over it?"
Well her younger sister Mya also loves to play games. She enjoys counting games, puzzles, and books that read to her. Mya is two years old, and her hands are slightly smaller. When Emma is sitting on the couch with her tablet, I give Mya my cell phone. They have alot of fun helping each other, and learning how to use new games. They can even play the same game at the same time.

Babies need time outside. It is important to use the parental locks and monitor what games are being played. Having the Internet switched off is a parental control that I use. The games typically donn't need internet unless making a purchase. After the game is downloaded and installed, no Internet is needed. Make sure as they grow older to continue to monitor them and use parental controls. Use timers and put time limits on use.
