Yes, my daughter has been watching tv since she was born! I started purchasing educational dvds before I gave birth. Baby Einstein has been her favorite as an infant. I also let her watch educational programs on cable too. I don't see a problem in kids under 2 watching tv as long as it is educational -- they're learning. BUT they shouldn't be allowed to watch tv all day. Use it as a learning tool, and include it as a activity during their day. Just don't rely on a TV to keep your kid occupied, that would be unhealthy.
