I also disagree with the person that said babies shouldn't be watching TV period, I mean its each individual parents choice, i wouldn't condem if you chose not to allow your baby to watch TV but not all TV is bad and i do believe it should be limited, and should not replace the time that you should spend with your child but we can't all spend every waking moment interacting with our babies, even though we'd like to, I mean if you have to shower or are cooking, many times where its appropriate to let your child watch something educational. I have two kids and they do not watch cartoon network, we don't even have cable. They watch a bit the PBs shows in the morning and sometimes a disney DVD with me and my husband. We have movie night once a week and its so awesome, but I do not flip out if they watch cartoon network at someone elses house its not a big dea. they are kids that will eventually grow into adults who will watch TV.
