Jasper is a very very active baby. VERY active. I feel really validated when other mothers have commented that my 7.5 month old is exhausting just to watch - and they cant imagine how I manage with him day in, day out, as he is crawling, cruising on furniture, bounces in your lap if you hold him. He crashes out for a couple of naps a day (thank god!) but for 9 hours a day he is into EVERYTHING and does not sit still.
Thats my disclaimer.
I feel like a bad mummy sometimes that I plonk Jasper in his bouncy seat to watch The Wiggles, but seriously, try one day with my son and you'd do the same! He's becoming increasingly difficult even to take him out of the house for any length of time, because he cant handle being strapped into his pram for much time at all and I end up carrying all 10.5 kilos of him and pushing the pram!
We've watched The Wiggles to death though. Jasper still loves it, but its doing mummy's head in. I bought him a cartoon movie "Robots" on the weekend, but as it doesnt have any music, it doesn't realy hold his interest.
Can anyone suggest any cartoon movies where they break into song every 5 minutes - but has enough content to make watching it bearable for me to watch over and over again?
And also places to buy DVDs cheap - ebay has been a real let down for cheap DVDs as I'd rather not pay more than $15 for it. I got wiggles for $12 and Robots for $9, so thats kind of the price range I'd like to look at.
Any suggestions at all?
