Winter loves it, and love how long it entertains her so I can do the dishes!

I don't have a TV, but I watch cartoons and Disney movies with David on the computer. I see no harm in watching TV unless it becomes a babysitter.

lol I think mine is a babysitter while I do the dishes, laundry, etc. But we are in the same room. Open concept.

I leave the tv on for the background, I think she looks at the tv for a little bit, maybe likes the sounds.

I don't intentionally let her watch tv but she likes to look at it while we're watching. If she's on her play mat and the tv is on she will just lay there and look at it. She also watches it when she sits in her swing.

Yes. The tv is just on in the background, pretty much from the time we wake up to the time we go to sleep. I just don't like a silent house, I need some noise. That said, we do turn on the radio from time to time, just don't like it as much. Anyway, it's not like I make Livy watch tv, but it's just on, and the flashy lights catch her attention.

She looks at it sometimes, but usually she's more interested in playing with me or her swing and stuff.

No, we don't have a TV...DH grew up without one (his family is very Waldorf-y and some think TV is the devil..lol). She does like to stare at the computer screen though and sometimes I let her watch videos that I'm watching on youtube...she is totally mesmerized by them!

I don't prefer to have Robby watch tv (I'm scared it'll reduce his attention span, which I notice it does to me), but it's on a lot at our house. He will break his neck trying to see what the lights and the noise are about, lol.

This is him, trying to get a look:

Ditto, except substitute Boppy for play mat. Big brother watches 20 minutes of TV before bed, so if I'm holding or nursing Evan on the couch, too, he'll crane his neck to look.

Philibert is fascinated by the light, colours and sound that the TV makes. However, the TV is rarely on, so he doesn't watch it often. I like it that way so far.
