what's the best for the baby?

me and my husband bought educational Cd's yesterday and we got in to a debate whether to buy Barney or Dora the Explorer vcd for our baby so we ended up buying sesame street instead. Which do you think is more educational for our 8 months old baby girl? (Barney, Dora, Sesame street or others?)

These educational cd's are ok. But i will recommend cedarmont kids songs and other products. Reading him nursery rhymes and other educational materials are best also for a growing baby. Also, give him toys that can develop her psychomotor skills and his senses. God bless.

Hi..My husband and I bought many educational CD for our son during he was 6 months old and now he was 2 years old.He has some CD's like Sesame Street,Barney,Thomas etc1.I was remember that We bought Sesame street as his first CD because when we shopping at mall,he likes it very much.I think,Barney or Sesame Street is more suitable for 8 baby months old.

pretteen, When my baby's about eight months old, I let him watch Disney's Magic English. It's simple and nice and very educational. Now that he is two years old, he's watching Elmo and barney.

At 8 months, we didn't have our little one watching too much tv - or videos. But she did enjoy the one Baby Einstein dvd that we were given (Mozart). It's very simiplistic - with puppet characters and toys moving about to Mozart music. Barney and Dora might be too advanced for an 8 month old. Sesame Street might be better, but even then it gets into subject matters more for older kids. Some 8 month olds will gravitate towards certain characters . . . others won't. Do your libraries carry videos for borrowing? This way, you can test them out at home before purchasing. You can see for yourself if the content is appropriate for your little one. In any case, do keep playing and interacting with your child .. . she'll learn so much more out of that than watching a screen!
