WASHINGTON- TV could play a role in making babies and toddlers more fussy according to research published in the Journal of Pediatrics.

A study found fussy kids were exposed to nine minutes more of various media per day than children who were more calm.

Researchers say too much screen time is associated with issues like language and learning delays and even ADHD.

They contend kids learn best by interacting with people, not screens, during the first years.
