Okay. So where do we stand with 20lb baby in sling all day snoozing his big thunder thighs off?
Well. We don't stand at all because my back freaking kills!
But if we did stand, it would be in that place that's called "This must freaking end now or I will look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame."
Seriously, folks. Did I do this to myself? It's okay. I can take it. With my daughter, I swear I tried to get her to sleep in something. And she did. A bouncing, rocking chair with my boob in her mouth. (heh). But really, she was IMPOSSIBLE.
And this time around, I swore that I would do it differently. But then, he didn't really like laying on his back. And I didn't have the time or patience to futz around with him because I had the other one that sucked all my patience and futzing. And so, I give you my current situation:
Sling Baby Who Only Nurses While Side Lying on the Bed Which is a Bitch in Public But Prefers the Sling With me Bouncing on the Ball
I had a long talk with this lovely lady who shared her fabulous tips (milky blanket? Amby bed?). And I've since started ONLY nursing him on the bed and he falls asleep and stays there ASLEEP if I leave the sling (now his security blanket) near him.
But that takes a long time. A long time in which my lovely precious three-year-old is bound to create tupperware castles in my in-laws' kitchen.
And so. I would like to know. What do YOU do to get your kid to sleep?
