How long do you let your babe fuss/cry? - Page 2

post #21 of 23
The car has been my personal hell but it is getting better. I pull over if I have to, offer nuk, sing "itsy bitsy spider" ( fav song), mirror, foam musical steering wheel that sits in her lap, books, it was BAD when she was younger cause I am in the car a LOT and she would get SOOOO mad! Glad things are getting easier!

If I can help it, I don't let Louis cry. Unfortunately there are times I can't pick him up right away - such as when I was cutting up raw meat for the cats and dog - I went ahead and finished that, washed my hands, and THEN picked him up! Luckily he's pretty going. The thing that kills me is if he gets upset in the car and I CAN'T stop like when I have to pick up one of the kids at school. Usually he calms down pretty quickly - especially if I sing to him.

I can't stand to let Sean cry. I bought an exersaucer (after much internal debate) and he hates it.
I usually sling him or just lug him on my hip. Now that he is sitting it has gotten much easier. He will often sit on the floor right outside the bathroom and I'll leave the door open, or he'll sit on the rug at the edge of the kitchen and watch me make dinner. I have a built in entertainment system though with a doting big brother.:
In the car he is usual pretty content, if he cries and we are not within a couple of minutes of where we are going, I'll pull over and nurse him for a minute. That usually does the trick.
