The Lady of the house speaking
"Do I sound like a Chinese takeaway?"
As you can guess...

...life is busy in my neck of the woods.

Little one is adorable and easy baby, but he's not the napping kind, at least if it he has to sleep anywhere else than on mommy's lap or in his pram (and it has to move somewhere outside the house) so mommy has precious little time for herself (there is only so many things you can do when holding a baby).

I think I'll keep most baby related blabberings as limited friends only entries, BUT it's easy to get on that list: just ask (and registering to LJ is free, so what are you waiting for?!).

I have to confess that I have been a BAD, BAD person and accidentally bought quite some stash when one-handed... more about that later. Castleville awaits.

Ramble away! Hehe I'm interested to know! Because I'm so clueless.

Here's a little tip for you, worked every time with Ryan... when you put your precious little one to sleep in his pram, put one of your shirts that you've worn in there as well. That way, baby can smell you and will likely settle as he's feeling secure knowing you're there... even when you're a few feet away. Got to be worth a try... :)

I spent a lot of time with baby on my chest. It's wonderful, but yeah, eventually you want to get up. Two suggestions: get some kind of baby carrier so that you can walk around with him and do things with both hands. However, he'll have to get bigger for most of them (many don't have the right head support; you need to make sure his head won't fall forward, not just back). The other thing is put him down awake. Often they cry because they're confused. Being awake when you put them down is easier on them, it seems. One author described it as having your pillow disappear in the middle of the night. :)

I follow the "EASY" method: Eat, Active, Sleep, You (while he's sleeping). If he falls asleep while nursing, change his diaper to wake him back up.

Have fun! :)
