No not at all
Some healthcare professionals choose to avoid cell phones and television in children under 2 years age, while some opt for just a 15 to 20 minutes exposure a couple of times a day. The main reason for this is that children need to start achieving their milestones like crawling, standing, walking, eating independently and too much exposure to technology will hinder this. There is no advantage to such exposures but exposure to the radio waves emitted by mobile phones for prolonged periods hazardous in small babies. The light emitted by these devices also affect their sleep patterns which are starting to adapt to a particular schedule.
After one year of age if your feel you would like to introduce your son to such technology use it for educational purposes only. Find apps and programs that are age appropriate and restrict it to 15 minutes a day, and then follow it with other activities. The more active your child is, the more social skills he will develop.
