Today was the first time I put on a TV show specifically for Molly’s entertainment. Sure, she has seen a little bit of TV just from hanging out in the living room, but this was the first show just for her.
I was looking for a way to help Molly relax while I did her nebulizer sodium chloride treatment for her lingering RSV infection. Kit and her mom had been using the mobile for this purpose, but it was sort of unwieldy to set up up by myself. So why not pull out a classic? I put on the DVD of Claire’s old favorite: Baby Einstein: Baby Shakespeare. As with Claire, Molly was engrossed by the puppets, music, and moving toys, and she did not mind the nebulizer one bit.
Now these Baby Einstein videos might not may your baby a genius, but you would have to be a real dummy not to use them from time to time!
