I have a really nasty cold. One of my twins has it too and is really suffering. The other one is being an absolute angel (a rare occurrence!), playing happily on his own or right now sitting quietly in his bouncer watching Hey Duggee and being wildly entertained by it while I tend to his distressed and grizzly (and horribly snotty) sibling. I feel like I should turn off the TV and take him out as I feel so guilty, but my head is pounding and I have my hands full.
Is it wrong to let him sit there having his brain melted for an hour or two?!
I think that's absolutely fine! I worked last night and haven't slept yet, so dd is eating toast and watching TV, hopefully she will nap soon (as will I), it's one day, it's absolutely not going to harm anyone. Hope you feel better soon.
I did it with my two year old when I was recovering from a gallbladder attack the other morning. Hey Duggee is the only thing that doesn’t drive me insane on repeat (worst thing I ever did was put on Little Baby Bum videos). Hope you feel better soon!
I wouldn’t purely because I find kids cartoons annoying. My DD (luckily) loves a good film or two! If they are happy in front of a tv though then it’ll be doing you some good to get better quicker. If you push yourself you’ll just delay getting better so I say let them watch it
One of my one year old twins had an ear infection last week and wouldn't let me put her down for about 3 days. Luckily other twin has developed an obsession for Justin off ceebeebies. She watched so much I'm worried she'll start calling him dad. You do what you have to. Thanks be for sky on demand x
I've never understood the issue of tv with kids. Mine love tv and I love them chilling out together watching a show rather than rowing over stealing each other's toys! It doesn't 'melt brains' I promise
Thanks so much ladies - I always feel guilty since there's always one who's needing more attention than the other and there aren't enough hours in the day. If they were singletons I think they'd get a lot more of my time and attention! Luckily it switches quite often though - the one who's being good today has an illness so he's normally the one getting more attention I guess!
Bloody love Hey Duggee!!! It certainly won’t be melting anyone’s brains. My DS is always quoting the show including telling me to lie down so I’d feel better when I was ill. You could do a lot worse - it could be Go Jetters! Give yourself a break and I hope your little one feels better soon
