DS2 is 6 weeks+ and he's a really good baby, sleep, eat, play basically like this. I am a SAHM but does a small PT home based job. Just wondering how the rest of you go about entertaining your newborn at home if you need to get busy in the kitchen or with older kids.
I have two musical mobiles at both ends of his cot, both were gifts, one battery operated and has a remote control, another is wind up type. When he's awake and happy, I usually pop him there and he can stay watching the mobile go..I alternate between the two mobiles.
I also have an automatic swing in the lounge and I put him there if needed just for him to be rocked while awake, he also does sleep on times at times.
Other times I sit up with legs up, I place him on my thighs and talk to him at eye level.
I also spend a little time showing him flash cards of contrasting B/W/R patterns so he rotates his head to the left and right...he tends to turn to one side more ATM.
What do you do to entertain our little one?
