I have a 5 month old Co-Sleeping little girl Serena (sitting on my lap trying to type at the moment, excuse the typos), she is still nursing so we are keeping her in our room for a while. She now sleeps in her pack-n-play beside our bed and I put her in bed with us during the night. DF and I watch shows at night time that are sometimes violent or scary (ex American Horror Story, Sons of Anarchy) and he doesnt think its a big deal because Serena is sound asleep and doesnt wake up during them.. but I dont know if she can still hear it while sleeping and if it could effect her subconsciously. I dont want her havng nightmares when she gets older because of the TV :(
Am I over-thinking this? Should I start to worry when she gets older? Is anyone else concerned about their babies watching grown up shows? Do you think violent shows could effect a baby while they are asleep?
I wouldnt worry about it. My daughter has been in the room when we watch horror movies and action movies and stuff and she has been just fine. She used to have nightmares, but not because of that. When she was having the nightmares, she was never around horror movies. My daughter is 7 months btw
I think you're overthinking it. All of my kids have slept in bassinets in my room for the first 3 months, and I'm sure they've all been exposed to violent TV shows/movies. So far, no lasting effects. :)
