Not if you regulate it and don't rely on it to keep her entertained. She is discovering new things every day so it's normal for her to be fascinated by a television. Try channels like Noggin or Disney where she can learn at the same time.

My baby is 3 months old and we have her swing in the living room. We also have a 3 yr old that watches TV, so it's hard for the baby not to watch TV. She will sit in her swing and just watch the TV. I don't see anything wrong with it as long as your not ignoring your baby all day and night and making her watch TV. I do interact with my baby all day and when I need to get stuff done, I just sit her in her swing and she totally moves her head so she can see the TV. LOL! My first daughter was watch Sesame Street since she was about 4 months old and she turned out fine. She is very smart, too smart .....LOL! Just do it on moderation and don't rely on the TV as a babysitter - as they say. But I think as mothers, we all do it sometimes.
