    Just a thought, but would a sound machine help? Have it running in the background. It might help with the distractions.

    An awesome thought - and we have one. Doesn't help. Kid has my teacher ears - hears EVERYTHING. (Not lying. I could hear kids' convos from across the room when I was teaching HS f2f - they hated it! "How does she DO that!?")

    I was thinking about turning the radio on in the kitchen all day long or something - so that it becomes a normal thing to just have noise all the time. This house IS quiet when DH and DD are gone during the day...

    The bold is what I was thinking actually. My mother told me with my first to not tip toe around. To have a house with a lot of life and let them get use to sleeping with noise. So we do. Unfortunately, my son is still easily distracted when he's nursing. I think it's more about not wanting to miss any of the party.

    Yup. Going to try this tomorrow. Today, at his lunch nursing, I sang the ABCs to him. Seemed to work for the moment. I'm going to keep trying everything I can think of.

    You ladies rock.
