battery_babyplus

If you see a “b” on your screen, it is an indication of a battery issue.  (Other indicators are a clicking sound or resetting of the lessons to Lesson 1.)

If these suggestions do not work, please contact us at customerservice@babyplus.com […] Read more »

The mom commented on how different her youngest was both socially […] Read more »
