When to worry about what's on TV?

I have a 3 month old baby so am still breast feeding a lot during the day, and so watching a lot of TV! I'm aware he is still very very young, but I'm wondering when people think the point is when you need to be aware of what's in TV and what they're taking in? I've noticed now he'll stare at the screen and focus on it more - and so do I need to be careful if I'm watching films with sex/drugs/violence in? While I don't intend to sit around watching Tellitubbies all day, o want to be sensible and maybe sure ds isn't taking too much in!

At 3 months all he'll see is movement and colour, he won't understand what he's seeing at all. If you're watching stuff when you're feeding him then he isn't even going to be "watching" it anyway.

When DS1 was that age I watched all of the series of True Blood, and all of the many series of Criminal Minds whilst breastfeeding him. As far as I can tell so far it's done no harm at all! As he got more mobile and nearer to a year old he fed less in the day so I naturally stopped watching TV whilst feeding him. It's really not an issue when they're tiny babies.
