New use for the Boppy Pillow

Boppy PillowMy 5 month old daughter loves to fall asleep in my arms or lap, especially after nursing. The only problem is, she wakes up and cries the instant I try to put her down. I was getting so frustrated because I was trapped on the couch, unable to get anything done at my computer desk. My temporary solution is to remove the armrests from my computer chair so that I can sit comfortably with a Boppy Original Pillow around my waist. Once my little one falls asleep, both of my arms are free to type, read, make phone calls, eat, etc.

If she does stir, I can swivel my chair with my feet for a pseudo-rocking effect. She also responds to “Pop Goes the Weasel;” for some reason it’s the only song that can put her right to sleep.

As soon as my butt is asleep, I know that it’s safe to put her in her crib for the night and time for Mommy and Daddy to go to bed. Earlier I said that this was a temporary solution. Just a few days ago, our little one slept in her own crib for the first time ever! Last night she slept by herself for six whole hours! Hopefully soon she’ll learn to fall asleep by herself in her crib and give her parents some much needed alone time.

The baby water actually isn’t any different than tap water and most say that you still need to boil it to ensure quality! I TOTALLY agree that it’s unnecessary!!

O, and btw, my kids are 4 and 2 and they still find uses for the boppy pillow :) Whether reclining while reading books or using it when they lay on their stomachs doing puzzles this thing has definitley gotten good use at our household!
