I don't know if this will really help any of you whose babies don't like to be put down or not, but I thought I'd share just in case, since Lyle is kind of a fusspot but will tolerate being put down. We do babywear a lot but we don't cosleep, so maybe he is more comfortable being by himself because of that, I don't know. (BTW I wanted to cosleep, and think it's awesome so I am not saying anything bad) This is where Lyle LOVES to nap and even just chill even when he's kinda fussy.
I could not live without this thing, I tend to hang out on my bed and he just chills. He seems to like it more than the bouncy seat even though there's a lack of toys.:
Obviously this thing isn't safe to leave a baby unattended, but I still get a break.
