A new survey finds many babies are watching TV and using smartphones before their first birthday.

Researchers with Einstein Healthcare Network in Pennsylvania surveyed 340 parents.

About half of babies had watched television shows, and more than a third had used a smartphone or tablet before they turned one; 15 percent had actually used apps!

The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages all forms of screen time for kids who are under age two.
