My son is a little over a year, and the mobile phone is a magnetic for him. Could be related that we use it quite a lot 😁.

We try to motivate him to play with other stuff, because the impressions of the world you get by swiping are really limited.
We try to minimize any screen time. (He'll have plenty early enough)

So atm we are kind of removing technology from the equation, to try to inspire him to play with "boring" stuff where you train imagination.

There is still a lot time left to train him to become a zombie in front of a screen 😇
