My wife and I made the mistake of feeding the baby while he watches television. It seems that is the only way we are able to get him to eat. I am hearing that it causes developmental issues and we are now so worried. Does anyone have any suggestions to ween him off TV?

Thanks Sharon. He is now almost 18 months now. It is almost impossible to get him to sit still unless the television is on. But we will try this.

Try playing music instead and perhaps singing along. Too much television isn't good for babies and it is good that you have recognised your mistake and want to fix it. Your baby will get used to feeding without the TV, but you need to be strong in keeping the TV off and don't give in if baby starts to fuss.
