I never thought I would love having an infant in my room, but I do with LO. I also love his cradle that glides so effortlessly side to side and I can soothe him in minutes. [He has a pretty large wooden cradle, not a bassinet]
However.... he is spreading out his little arms when he sleeps and they are going through the slots of the cradle. (It's kind of like a crib) If he tries to bring his arm back in, he flips out because he's stuck. For one, I don't want something to hurt him but for two, I just want him to be comfortable.
I am worried about the train that runs past the back of the house, literally behind his room. (and DS's room) Sometimes, if it's going really fast, it will shake the backside of the house. Other times, it is not going super fast, but there is a road not far down from our house so the train will honk and honk and honk and it is LOUD.
We are thinking that we will have the ipod playing his sound machine music, so hopefully that may be able to offset some of that sound? I don't know. We are going to try naps in the crib today. Any suggestions?
