So that's when I get creative. He HATES being swaddled, but apparently between the hours of 1 and 3 PM he loves it! Seriously, try it any other time of day, no good. Around 1pm, wrap him up and turn on the sound machine with the heartbeat sound, and he's out! Here are some pictures from the first time we tried this.
Yup, not tired at all lady.
And then, complete surrender to the sound machine. TKO!
Just the other day (before the magical 1:00 hour), he was really losing his mind, and so was I. Desperate for anything that might work, I brought him over to the computer and found Baby Einstein on youtube. It was a long shot, but I thought I might just see if I could turn him into a complete TV-aholic at an early age. And it worked! Seriously, he went from a purple faced, vein bulging, screaming fit to this:
Oh the power creepy puppets and classical music have over a young mind. I think someone will be asking for these for Christmas..........or perhaps as a Fourth of July/Labor Day present. Mommy may not make it 6 more months!
Here are some more calm Harvey pictures.
Sweetest little face!
