Im really into it at the moment, and my daughter (first baby) is due to be induced on monday. Would it be bad if we played it together??

DS spent the first few weeks of his life napping on my chest while I completed Fable II.

I rather think his great moral compass is a result of this wink

I played hundreds of hours of Skyrim while constantly breastfeeding my newborn son. He used to fall asleep to the crackling of the fires in the taverns.

I was addicted to my Gameboy (so so so many years ago) when my babies were born. My brothers had bought me the gameboy as a birthday present when I was pregnant. I'm pretty sure my kids dreamt in Tetris for the first few months. grin

You might have to wait a couple of weeks until her eyes focus - then you can use a dual controller, yes?

shockers Sat 12-Oct-13 08:31:13

You have to wait till she's 18 months... it says so on the box.

Fuzzysnout Sat 12-Oct-13 08:48:25

Happy mum, happy baby. Your rules. You probably should buy her her own console though.

justabigdisco Sat 12-Oct-13 08:51:23

My daughter's first film was the Godfather part II, and she then enjoyed series 1&2 of breaking bad. It's character building!

My 8 month old is ace at candy crush.

DS1 watched Sopranos with DH from young. Ur babs ur rulz

Mojavewonderer Sat 12-Oct-13 11:40:09

I wouldn't because I suspect my baby (if I had one) would be better at it than me and then I would be really jealous and throw a tantrum.
I really hope someone buys me this game for my birthday in 2 weeks...mum, husband, sis in law and friends if you are reading this I want GTA5 for my birthday please smile

Finola1step Sat 12-Oct-13 11:45:41

Do it. My mate says I'm depriving mine cos I won't let em play GTA5. Says my kids will be behind all the others when they start school.

munkysea Sat 12-Oct-13 11:49:02

it'll be great practice for when she takes her driving test when she's two.

BeaverAbroad Sat 12-Oct-13 12:26:02

Oh yes, go ahead. Starting a bit late though, I got my mine addicted to the game inside the womb.

sydlexic Sat 12-Oct-13 12:54:20

You are being ridiculous, there was a man in America who forgot to feed his baby because he played evil video games.

spritesoright Sat 12-Oct-13 14:07:11

Of course it's fine and babies just like the snuggle. DH perfected the art of balancing the baby on his chest while playing Xbox.
You might be surprised though at your newfound intolerance to violence once DD is born. I think it's the hormones or just some innate desire to protect your child (who is so very tiny and vulnerable when they arrive). But I found even the news too upsetting to watch after DD was born and didn't make it through a Hitchcock movie that had only a hint of violence.
I'm desensitised again now DD is 2!
