things that work
Posted December 28, 2012on:
– “Quiet time” – gives me an afternoon break of about 2 hours. May stays in her bed and she can choose to play quietly or read or sleep. I set the timer and call her when it’s over. I think I’ll put a walkie talkie in there at some point to communicate with her, in case I’m busy with Tim.
– Activity books. This is a very fun thing for both of us to do while I hold Tim (nursing or letting him sleep). I read the instructions and guide her through the activities.
tablet – oh yeah!
Tim’s growing and changing. He’s very sweet and mild, more vocal than May when he’s displeased with things, but mostly just grunts and squeaks. I tried moving back to the bedroom with everyone, but after 2 nights, I asked May if she thinks I should just stay in the separate room – and she agreed. Because Tim’s crying woke her up.
