how do you entertain babies?

Post by MiltonSpammy on Tue Aug 30, 2011 5:41 am

Connies all awake today and I'm trying to make myself some breakfast/lunch I've put her in her bouncy chair to watch me but shes just crying, I tried the play mat aswell and that also caused tears.
Shes not hungry and will stop crying once I pick her up shes just looking for attention but obviously I can't give it to her Sad

how do you entertain babies that can't even play yet?
this is irratating, I was holding her all day yesterday cos of it!


bright side though she slept through til like 6am Very Happy

We've only just got to the "slightly entertaining himself" stage. Before that he was constantly in my arms. I must admit i did put him infront of the tv in his swing on quite a few occasions Embarassed

Yay for sleeping through though!

hugs, its so hard when they just want to be held all the time!

Luca's currently going through this. Though he's teething and got separation anxiety. Its really hard when you can't leave them to go to the toilet / make something to eat / drink..

It will pass...
how old is Connie?

lol, my 2 year old will happily sit in front of the TV / play with his toys on his own if I let him now, he's been like that since about 10 months old.

have you got a baby swing?
this would get both my babies to sleep without minutes, or they would just be happy to rock there for 10 minutes whilst I did what they needed to do?

When she gets a bit older you can pop ehr on your back in a wrap/carrier. You could do it at 6w but I've not dared yet
