Back in May, a TV channel for babies was launched in the US amidst much controversy.  CMCH researchers were contacted for their opinions, interviewed on radio shows, quoted in several newspapers, and featured on CNN and local news stations. 

This week both a Canadian channel and a South African channel for babies will also be launched. 

24-hour TV for babies is an idea that directly conflicts the recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that children under 2 years old should not watch TV.
