There are all kinds of amazing products out there to help new parents, and I am a strong proponent of using technology to assist with parenting. That being said, it’s interesting to know facts regarding the popularity of products that depart from expert recommendations. For instance, Disney’s series of “Baby Einstein” DVDs were owned by 1/3 of babies in the U.S in 2003 even though The American Academy of Pediatrics cautions against kids under two watching television. Without sounding overly sinister, I feel that there aren’t just financial concerns at play here.
