Breastfeeding and bonding

Is it okay to nurse my baby with the TV on?

As a general rule, no — feeding time with your baby is bonding time for the two of you. It's a time you hold, snuggle, and talk to your baby. He needs this interaction to grow and develop.

Oh man, I guess my son will never know who I am or learn how to do anything from me. On the flip side he'll surely feel a kindred bond with Oprah and know how to decorate like Nate. These things could come in handy, so I'm not turning off the tube. And I suppose surfing the web whilst nursing is just as detrimental? I'm screwed.
