The rest of the day was spent at home, trying to keep all the boys rested and not too cranky. Sadly for both Sheepie and Boy , that didn't work. Sheepie just continues on with what he'd been doing Sunday, so I largely just ignored him when he melted down and he spent a good part of the day laying in bed crying (and sleeping).
Boy had been getting sick too, so to top that with his shots and teething he needed all the cuddles he could get. I decided it was time to enact on something I'd wanted for a long time anyways... a baby wrap. Basically it's a really really long piece of sturdy fabric that you can use to wrap and tie in various ways to hold your baby. They are ridiculously expensive in stores, so I haven't ever bought one.. but I just happen to have a nice, very long piece of fabric in my closet that would work lovely. It needed to be haved and sewn together, so I quickly did that and after sewing it so that they was no way even a nuclear bomb could rip out my stitches (let alone a little babys weight) I tried wrapping Boy for the first time.
Terrible pictures (stupid self timer and such), but you can see what I mean, by baby wrap.
I still need to sew all the hems of it, so that it doesn't fray, but let me tell you what!!!! He calmed right down and buried himself into the fabric under one of the shoulder straps so that his head was blocked from the light and went right to sleep. He didn't wake up after that until 6:30 Tuesday morning. Even when I took him out of it, and changed him into a bed time diaper. (he also calmed right down when I put him in it Tuesday morning when his shots/teeth were hurting him again.) The nice thing about it, is unlike other baby carriers I have, since he's wrapped against my body and there isn't a lot of extra space I don't feel like he's going to fall out when I move around. I can really use both my hands to do just about everything, and he's not bothered by it!!! You can also tie it so they sit on your hip, or on your back. I found a website that basically shows dozens of ways to tie baby wraps. What a life saver.
