What are your opinion on babies and children watching TV? I have read that it can lead to ADD or similar attention problems b/c a baby's brain can not handle the bright flashing pictures and all. I wonder if this is true. If I am sitting on the couch watching TV and feeding my daughter a bottle, for example, she really pays attention to the TV. I try not to let her watch it. There is a certain time at night every day I make sure the TV is off, so as not to over stimulate her at night. Sometimes I like to watch a TV show though, and I worry that she should not be exposed to it at all. Any thoughts?
