Welcome!! From the time my son was born we always had his back to the TV if it was on. We still watched TV here and there. Once he got to the age where he would turn his head towards it we went to a no TV during the time he was awake policy. If he was awake the TV was always off. That worked really well for us. He is 3 now and has never watched TV. I found that family and friends gave us a hard time at different points but if you stick to your plan they just accept it and move on. American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no TV before the age of 2 so most of my friends didn't do TV till there kids were closer to 2. You could always quote that. Its not the easiest road at first but once you get used to it, its really no big deal. My son doesn't know any different so he never even asks to watch TV.
