this is how henry sleeps the best if we are at home... on the dryer with the vacuum running next to him. i can't quite understand how he can sleep with all that movement and noise... i like peace and quite! several baby books that i have been reading suggest soothing your baby with loud noises like a vacuum, hair dryer or static along with movement (mostly head bobbing). with gavin i was able to follow the happiest baby on the block method but since henry is not cooperating with taking a pacifier we are short one of his 5 steps. you need all 5 to be successful.

henry is particular about his movement he likes either the car, the dryer, and bouncing on an exercise ball- two of those methods are costing me a pretty penny to run. i have been reminding him that he only has 3 more weeks of this bad habit before he has to go to daycare because they will not be driving him around or placing him on a dryer. hope we get this figured out sooner or later- it will make going back to work a tad easier on me. i hate to think that he will be crying all day long.

* please note that i do not leave the area when he is on the dryer.
