Before having Gunnar I was a TV addict.
I turned it on the moment I woke up in the morning and it stayed on until I went to bed at night.
Even when I wasn't watching it...it stayed on as background noise.
This was a hard habit to break. But I'm glad I did.
By the time Gunnar turned 4 weeks old the TV has never been turned on before 6:30pm or whenever Gunnar goes to bed.
There is just so much to learn in the early stages of life...the TV will only distract. So we cut it out of our life (or at least the better part of our day). We read more...do more...it's a good thing.
This video makes a better argument than I could write about TV and Babies.
