    Default Entertaining babies!

    Okay, I'm all out of nursery rhymes and am almost hoarse from singing to my 3 month old twins to keep them entertained during awake time! What do others do to keep their little ones happy during this time? I wonder if I'm doing too much with them and they're not learning to be content without my constant attention too. What do you think?
    Obviously, with two, slings etc are not possible so I can carry them around with me. Any other ideas?

    * Those baby mats with the toys overhead- just lay them down and let them explore and try and grab objects.
    * Place them on their tummy for tummy time with some toys that are safe for them to mouth and grab.
    * Childrens nursery rhyme cd's can be played while they have some floor time.
    * We had a childrens swing that we used for short periods too.

    You could always sling one to back and one to front? Not hugely ideal but possibly do-able in a pinch? :-)

    Good advice already so far. My added suggestion is popping them in front of a mirror!

    Cheap, easy and they love looking and reaching for the other 'baby'. The mirror is my babysitter for quick showers, DS2 loves it!

    ETA - I have one on my wardrobe cupboard, so place him on the floor.
