Do you let your baby watch tv?

Yesterday, my husband and I let my almost 12 week old watch Mickey Mouse Club House, just to see what he would do. He gets so excited that he kicks his legs continuously, and squeals. It's so cute. Don't get me wrong, I am not going to let my baby watch tv all day..I would never do that. I just think it's cute. Maybe it's the bright colors. Do you let your baby watch tv?

  • Yes. He watches Dragon Tales every morning at 6:30am. While I don't condone using the TV as a baby sitter, if it keeps him occupied for a while, it keeps him occupied!

  • Just for afew seconds if I need to use the washroom, or make some coffee or something. Then I turn my program back on and she usually loses interest anyway. But she will be on the floor playing or in her exersaucer.
    A friend of mine sticks her son in a high chair in front of the tv. I think that is wrong. Cant even escape it if he wants to :(

  • My 12 m son has to take breathing treatments with a nebulizer - Blues Clues/Kid the Science Kid/Sesame Street help out while he has to sit still in the highchair! However, he doesn't ever seem interested unless in the highchair.

  • from time to time he watches TV... but for the most part no. My son is 14 months and he doesn't need TV to numb his mind

  • My 6week old loves to watch the colors and movement on tv. And hubby usually gets down there and plays with him too. He's "teaching" him to roll over. lol
