Okay, I know you're not supposed to park your baby in front of TV, but if you must, Baby Mozart is the way to go... FI was screaming and nothing I could do for her was helping, i.e. she was clean, dry, fed, etc. Even bobbling her on exercise ball was not cutting it. I fired up the DVD and she immediately was mesmerized by the images and the music... Set her in the swing and she was rapt. Now she has dozed off.
Am I a bad mother?
I think I would be if I was letting her watch "GI Joe" or similar... but surely comfortable images of puppets, toys, mobiles, etc. set to lovely music is not so bad? It certainly saves my sanity at times like these.
