  • No. As long as you don't leave it on all night, it's fine.

  • Boy I hope not! Lol I slept with the tv on with all my kids as babies! I think it's fine and I used it basically as a night light so I could see and not blind myself if they woke up.

  • No it's jussst fine :) My 4mo DD sleeps with her bassinet next to my bed and I leave the tv on the light classical station when I go to bed so we have tunes and so I can see when she wakes up to nurse! It's wonderful :)
