Let me start off by saying my son doesn't sit in front of the tv 24 hours a day. He enjoys being in his exersauser and have something on while I'm in the shower or doing laundry. I don't use the tv as a babysitter, more as a parenting tool to teach him he can play by himself and that tv is meant for enjoyment (at least that's what I'm hoping to teach him). Most of the time, he just plays with his exersaucer toys and only watches the show when something interesting happens (silly noises, bright colors, etc).
Ok, now that we have that out of the way, does your LO have any favorite shows? Right now he's really into Curious George, Blue's Clues, Dinosaur Train, and Pocoyo. DH has been watching Star Trek a lot lately and DS loves the theme song lol
