Home on the Range...
My baby is under the extractor fan.
No, I have not lost the plot completely. I do have SOME nerves left, frayed as they may be...
After spending the last hour bouncing, jiggling, rocking, feeding, changing and winding the tiny princess to no avail, a small voice in my head reminded me of this neat trick which had been passed on to me via my own personal, "mam's network."
The logic behind this seemingly odd tip is that the hum of the fan works as "white noise" and helps to settle your baby to sleep.
So at the start of this post, I whupped the baby up onto the range. On went the extractor fan. (For all of you swooning at the recklessness of the phrase "baby on the range," I did not leave her unattended at any point. Mom, you can put down the phone.)
By the time I typed "mam's network," she was down for the count.
I am such a pro...
Do you have any "odd" tips that work for you?
