I currently breastfeed my 9 month old about 3 hours each day. That’s 12.5% of my day! Now I understand why I can’t find time to scrub the floors and polish the silver! (hm hm, kidding. only kidding.)
My toddler is awake during those three hours, and I’m a very unprepared mama. She’s not capable of entertaining herself, especially when I say, “Go read a book” or “Get Big Bear from your closet and play with him.” She’d rather throw a tantrum than do what I tell her to do. So do you know what she does while I’m nursing the baby? She watches shows on YouTube.
I always thought I’d be that mom that had lots of fun activities planned, and we wouldn’t have to turn on shows to entertain us. But turns out I’m not that mom. And she watches a heckuvalot of YouTube shows. And Hello Kitty.
My mom would let me watch anything I wanted…for hours on end. I frequently watched E.T., Dumbo, Bambi, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at the tender age of 3. She used to purchase movies (what seemed like) weekly. A lot of those movies were the kind that never come out in theaters, especially the ones for Halloween, Christmas, and various other holidays. I used to love watching those movies. I’m over it now, but I really had great memories from movie-watching. Haha.
I’m not the type to spend money on a movie, and we don’t have cable or decent television, so that’s why I turn to YouTube often.

I still haven’t found a lot of shows on YouTube that Sofía can watch, so she tends to watch the same stuff over and over again. The following list will be great next week leading up to Halloween, so she can watch Halloween themed shows each day. I hope your own toddler likes them!
