This unique new Spanish-language resource is designed specifically for expectant and new parents, and aims to help families cultivate healthy screen time habits—for their child and for parents/caregivers while around their child—from the day baby is born. Developed by the Children's Screen Time Action Network and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), Be Tech Wise With Baby! is uniquely tailored to an often overlooked but critical period when it comes to screen time advice: baby's first year of life.

Be Tech Wise With Baby! covers how to boost baby's brain development and communication skills from birth; ways that screen use by babies—and their caregivers—can impact a child's healthy development; and

  • tips for creating a home environment that sets baby up for optimal growth.

This Be Tech Wise With Baby! handout is well suited for pediatrician, ob-gyn, and other medical offices and outpatient therapy clinics; libraries; day care centers; and all other settings that provide information for new parents and caregivers. It is also available in English.

This resource was co-created by Action Network Early Childhood Work Group members Alice Hanscam and LeAnna Heinrich and Action Network partner ASHA.
