Teaching my baby

I'm currently showing my baby learning videos such as numbers, shapes etc.... Is that a good idea? Does it help my child learn faster? Or does doing hand-on things help him more? Any tips????

    I think both.. I think if you sit WITH your baby and play along and repeat and clap and watch with them then a video can be great.. also, if you need time to clean or use the bathroom.. and they're watching the video alone that's fine too sometimes.. they absorb so much..

    But I would take every opportunity to teach your kids .. when you're driving or walking or at the park.. Point things out "Green slide".. "look.. two swings.. one, two".. sounds cheesy when I write it out.. lol.. but it works!
