I'm probably going to come across as a really bad mum but honestly just realised this could be a big issue so please don't judge me , I just wanted to know your opinions on this because it's very divided ... Basically we have our TV on nearly all day mainly as background noise (I'd say from 3pm to 9pm) . I always turn my LG away from the screen but yesterday she started to turn round to try and watch it which really freaked me out ... Only once have I turned her to face the screen when I had to clean up a spill in the kitchen and it was 5 mins max. Can background tv damage infant development ? It's also on in the evening as well as we both fall asleep to it - DD can sleep through it and in silence but even this is worrying me too... Am I causing her damage for the long run!?
