Books On Tape. This new mom's lifesaver04 March 2010
I was blessed with two angel-babies and expected my third to be the same. But, although adorable, he came out a bit of a cranky-pants. (Oh, you mothers of colicky babies who I never understood, I DO now.) This little one has stomach issues and my only relief from his crying was the car. I frequently took my kids on rides in the car. The older ones played with toys and mini-man slept. (Oh the silence! It was music. Beautiful, beautiful music.) Sometimes, I popped in one of my books-on-tape from the library. I have been through quite a few now and am ADDICTED. The picture above shows the ones I have listened to in the last couple weeks. (Well, fine...the bottom two are my husband's, but they made the picture's composition look better.) This is a trick I highly recommend to all you moms-of-fussy-babies.
If any of you have book recommendations, please let me know. I need to reserve some more at the library asap! I only have 30 minutes left!
FYI: In the past couple weeks, my little cute stinker has FINALLY decided not to cry for the majority of his wakeful hours. Phew! He is a happy little guy, although I can tell he is still having stomach pains and it breaks my heart. We are going to pick up some gripe water like so many of you suggested today and see if it helps.
