We didn't let E watch until 18 months and now I think that was too soon. Maybe two for the next one, and only a little in the morning.

I haven't really thought about it. Our TV is barely used, and when it is on it's almost always for video games x) But I guess when she's older, a couple shows here and there won't hurt, but I"m not going to get her started while she's still a baby. I don't want my kids to end up like my siblings were.. all they did was watch TV, all day, sitting around staring at the screen, their mouths hanging slightly open. Kept them quiet, but it really bugged me even when I was younger. One more thing I learned not to do from my parents, I guess.

This was a battle for us... Tim's parents didn't let him watch TV constantly and they don't always have a TV on, but for some reason he does. Always. Constantly. TV all the time. It drives me nuts. But I pick my battles. When Tim is not home, the TV will likely not be on.

Well my husband has already bought the babe football and basketball watching outfits...

I'm fine with PBS and daddy/son ball watching bonding time. Other than that I don't see a reason for him to watch TV.
We've already bought tons of books and toys, so it's not like our kid will be sitting around with nothing to do.

There's alot of educational programming for kids and baby now. I read an article that said babies being exposed to screens (TV, computer etc...) is linked to autism. I don't know if it's been proven.

Right now I say no. At least not in a a swing or chair placed in front of the tv. If I'm feeding and their eyes wander to the tv, then whatever. I plan on getting a lot of books and a few toys to stimulate their mind. No intentions on tv being a core part of the day.
Of course when they get older, yes, they will end up watching tv.
