Baby health - what's normal? - Page 2

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.

I have a Baby Papasan chair and both of my kids have loved it. It has straps, so you can walk away, and sits on my kitchen table. We have an older one and bought it used for maybe $20 on craigslist.

Sally, we inherited a baby Papasan too and Piper is napping in it as we speak.  It's pretty much the only place she'll be ok, and that just in the last week or so.  Hopefully we can turn this into a scheduled napping place.

We have one of these:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/9963994@N03/778559011/

 

DH got it from a friend before our first child was born, it's 8yrs old and Gilbert is the 6th child to use it. They've all loved it!  I can move it room to room or even outside and it's just the handiest thing.  Oh and only one set of batteries per child and the noises it makes are actually soothing, not obnoxious.  I just put the toy bar on last week and Gil's mind was totally blown   hahah

 

But what I've really loved for this baby is the kid's beanbag chair!  It's similar to what you posted, boots, I have a lambskin I put on it and then I can position Gilbert whichever way he's most comfortable (upright for the pukes!).    Mind you he's not at all mobile right now so it probably has a limited life because there aren't any straps to keep him secure.

In the meantime, it's been great to have around :)

This is the seat we have - only thing Baby Bird would sleep in for awhile. We've mostly weaned him off sleeping in it, thankfully, though we sometimes still use it to get him to sleep. I specifically avoided using the vibrate function on it for awhile, because I didn't want to use up batteries. But dh started using it, and now he's not nearly so happy in it with that feature turned off. If he falls asleep in it, he'll often wake up when the vibrations automatically shut off after awhile. The only thing I wish were different is that I wish it had one of those toy bar thingies on it. He is entranced by the hanging monkeys, and has been since he first got it. (I didn't think he'd care that young.) But I think he'd like something he could grab at.

Atticus is sleeping (and hiccuping) in that exact chair right now!
