The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that screen time, including movies and TV shows, should be avoided with babies younger than 18 months.
For children who are 18 to 24 months of age, a little bit of educational programming can have value, such as shows offered on PBS.
What age can you take a child to the cinema?
Well, it depends on your kid. Lots of kids see their first movie around the age of 3 or 4, but some parents wait until kids are a bit older, especially if they’re sensitive to loud noises or scared of the dark. Choose the right movie.
Can you take a 2 year old to the movies?
If you want to take him along, though, because you really, truly think your child will enjoy the movie, by all means, take him! (The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no screen time for kids under age two, but occasional exceptions are okay.) Some kids find the big images and loud noise overwhelming.
Can we take 3 months baby to movie?
Yes you can but you may not want to. Movie theaters can have unexpected loud noises which can frighten a 3 month old. A fussy 3 month old in a movie theater is highly inconvenient to customers who pay so they can enjoy a movie.
Can infants go to movie theaters?
Some movie theaters now offer sensory-friendly movies during the afternoons. These are a great option to bring a baby to, as they are geared toward families with lower volume and brighter theaters. That also means there will be children and moms and dads, so a little noise from your baby is unlikely to bother anyone.
