    My first was an early riser, and frequent waker as a toddler and thankfully a TV watcher. I'd let him watch *mumble mumble* probably way too much TV.

    My 19 month old doesn't watch TV, she might watch an episode of peppa pig (5 mins) a day IF I'm lucky. She likes to listen to "in the night garden" to go to sleep, but only if she's actually falling asleep otherwise she gets bored after a few minutes. I wish she would watch half an hour a day. Lol.

    Go for it.
    My dd is 11 months. .. . We love to sit and watch a couple of episodes of cloudbabies. She loves it!
    I don't feel bad about it. Don't guilt yourself.

    Only looked alot of stuff up today because I was feeling guilty and needed some reassurance?!? I tend to look at a variety of info as well as get real mum's experiences and opinions if that's ok?

    DD has watched heaps of TV from an early age, I found a lot of the foxtel so educational, stories, songs, animal planet, language ... like you she had a great deal of socialisation and activities apart from this. I wouldn't put it on automatically but only for a particular show, then turn it off when the show was finished or she started losing interest. It's not the devil in my opinion.

    I think it's just that when somebody disagreed with you, you pretty much told them to go jump. Be prepared for differing opinions!

    As for me, I used to worry about it - DD started watching TV (Playschool all the way!) around 18 months. Now she watches maybe 2-3 eps on an average days, some days none at all, some days far, far more. To me, it's more about how they react to it, you can generally tell if a kid is watching too much tv, they sort of zone out and get all weird. As long as kids still do a lot of creative play and spending time with their parents as they do chores etc then I reckon, it's all good.

    I didn't think I told anyone to go jump, I just stated I had read about that study today and it is extremely outdated and has been disproven. I'm happy for differing opinions, I thought I was just further discussing that differing opinion?

    Anyway, nevermind. I did say I was feeling guilty but enough people have told me they do the same thing so I feel less bad now (thanks guys) That's all I needed, a little bit of reassurance. Didn't think that was against the rules. Or maybe I wasn't clear in my post. I don't know. Nevermind!

    Apparently the study is still valid.

    Anyway, I did not say that to make you feel bad, that's just my personal opinion, I think that passive screen time should be limited for children, let alone children under 2 but we all do things that we know aren't ideal.

    I have my 14 months old hot chips on the weekend, and as long as it's not every weekend, I'm sure he'll turn out fine.

    It is totally fine! My 15 month old has just started taking an interest in Hi 5 House. I let him watch it as he's so active the rest of the time. It gives me a bit of time to get things done. Don't feel guilty and don't let people make you feel that way!

    That's where I'm at now. She loves it for the tiniest fraction of the day. No harm

    Totally fine. DS was watching exactly the same amount at the same age. He has an incredible imagination and vocabulary and a great attention span. At nearly 3yo he pretty much watches 1-2 hours a day still.
