Are We Bad Parents?

Are we bad for letting Baby Lilly watch TV?
Around once a day, I put Lilly in this little activity seat and let her watch TV while I give my arms a rest. She normally lasts about 20 minutes until she gets bored and we move on to something else.
It gives me a chance to relax for a second and she seems entertained.
Not a problem, right?
A new report from the World Health Organization has issued its first-ever guidance for how much screen time children under 5 should get and it’s not very much.
In fact, kids under the age of 1 shouldn’t be exposed to ANY screens. No TV, phones, tablets or computers.
The U.N. health agency said that kids under 5 should not spend more than one-hour watching screens every day — and that less is better.
Are we bad parents? Does anyone else do this?
