Many babies are watching TV and using smartphones before their first birthday.

Researches with Einstein Healthcare Network in Pennsylvania surveyed 340 parents.

About half of babies had watched TV shows, and more than a third had used a smartphone or tablet.

The research also said 15 percent had actually used apps.
