Btmac, did went on eBay and gumtree and also googled around...wow it's steep. I am sure DH won't want to spend this $. The new born recliner seat looks like a car seat doesn't it? The angle seems sloped like a carseat.
a good padded reclining high chair with removable tray is the same thing
mine is a god send!
My newborn didn't HAVE any awake and happy time. She spent so long feeding that she was then either asleep, or overtired and needed to be put to sleep. Over 2 months now and she's still the same *sigh*.
We have a number of things though that we'd use if we could - a bouncer, swing, a couple of play mats. Also carriers/slings if bub wants to be with you.
Wow...had a look at the website. Can you use that for bfg too? Is it easy to wear? It looks pretty complicated.
Tummy time on a floor mat, read aloud (sometimes I just read my own books as if I'm reading a children's book, it's all about being exposed to different words...), play music and sing, go for a walk in the pram or even just take him outside while I hang laundry or do a little gardening...
The hug a bug is awesome. I can do it now in a minute easy and I am mega unco.
In terms of play, could the older ones entertain your little one? My ss and sd are 5 and 7 and are amazing with my bub. They read to her, sing songs and talk to her. Great for all those developing pathways in the brain! I love it when they come to stay as my baby (7 weeks) also loves their company.
My baby's favourite things at the moment is staring and smiling at a simple smiley face drawn on the back of an old cd.
