me to was wondering the same hun. I feel bad for leaving him to go do something lol. But i know that i feel it more then he does. I think they enjoy looking around into space because they are learning thier sorroundings. As thier vision gets better they too look around more and more and it intertanes them.
Great thread I was thinking this to nice to see im not the only one, LO has just started to entertain him self with out being held all the time but I feel guilty leaving him to wash up or make something to eat but I guess he will soon tell me when he has had enough on his own I think I'm the one who doesn't like it lol
if i leave my little girl so i can grab something to eat or get dressed, ill put her in her bouncer and have the telly on so she can listen to it, sometime i face her towards it too and she will watch it for 5-10 mins x
glad i read this thread, i always feel like i should be doing more with her but donīt know what. also i wish she would sit quietly in her bouncer or swing for a while i could grab some lunch without her on my shoulder, or have a quick shower etc. she now manages a few minutes without wanting to be picked back up again. although i canīt complain at the constant cuddles but i feel guilty that i should be doing more housework.
my lo sits in her bouncer or lies in the moses basket we have down stairs, i'm not really a sing to baby mum but i talk to her all the time she gets a running comentry of what i am doing, we sometimes have a dance to the music channel on sky which she seems to enjoyas i get lots of smiles. i have done this with my other two dd only thing is i find myself doing it when in shops and out i've got used to the funny looks off people as they think i'm talking to myself, its easier as they get older as they begin to interact more
When my LO (also 2 months) is awake I spend a bit of time singing to her, reading a book or just talking to her about some of her toys then will leave her on mat under play gym for a few minutes to amuse herself. If I need to be out of the room for a longer time to cook dinner or get dressed, I take her with me and sit her in bouncer and just describe what I'm doing as I do it! Means I can get on with things and she can take in surroundings and still have me/my voice around for comfort if she needs it. Keep doing just what you're doing - sounds like you are doing just great to me
