    Of course it isn't, gastro is horrendous, so you need to do what you need to do!
    Hope you feel better soon.

    No, of course not.
    When i am sick i use the tv as a babysitter, imo you do what you need to to get through - a day of tv isn't going to harm them.

    I'm fairly certain most parents will do this at some point. I know I have.

    My DD has been getting babysit by tv for most mornings and some sessions during other parts of the day whilst I continually vomit from morning sickness. when your sick you have to do whatever works IMO.

    Heck, tv keeps my 5yr old entertained from the moment he gets up(anytime between 4:30am to 6am) until i get up in the mornings to get him ready for school or whatever.

    Dont sweat it. We all use tv to some degree. Some only let their kids watch an hour or less a day but i am sure they use that time wisely with catchup on things they need to do or relax.

    Hope you feel better soon.
