New guidelines from the World Health Organization are advising parents against exposing their children age 1 and below to screens — in any capacity.

The W.H.O issued new guidelines for how much screen time babies and young children should get, and it is very little.

How much screen time is recommend per age group?

  • Infants (less than one year):"Screen time is not recommended. When sedentary, engaging in reading and storytelling with a caregiver is encouraged."
  • Ages 1-2:"For 1-year-olds, sedentary screen time (such as watching TV or videos, playing computer games) is not recommended. For those aged 2 years, sedentary screen time should be no more than 1 hour; less is better."
  • Ages 3-4:"Sedentary screen time should be no more than 1 hour; less is better."
