Re: Quality time with LO before work
Mine is also about 7.5 months and very fussy if not attended to. Before i get out of bed i nurse DD. Next I take her to change her diaper. Then we are off to the shower. We have a jumpy swing hanging in the doorway of the bathroom and I can walk in the shower and watch and talk to DD the entire time. The set up happens to be perfect: doorway is wide, shower is walk in with glass door, bathroom is large. I also have her in the swing while I get ready as the vanity is right in front of the doorway where she's jumping. I sing and talk to her, even sit on the floor next to her to do my makeup. We have a great time - she loves to jump. I put my clothes in the bathroom in advance so she never leaves my sight. When I'm ready I nurse her before leaving.
If we didn't have this ideal set up I'd prob see what else would fit in the bathroom, like an exec saucer, pack n play etc but she's happiest jumping in that swing. But it's key that I make sure she's not hungry.
