Cheer up, Sleepy Jean
I think Reenie used all of these on her kids at one time or another.
Good one man!
Thx Steve. I bet you've tried at least a third of these with your new one, haven't you?
Hmmmm, some of these techniques look familiar and I'm not saying which ones.
Ok, now I disagree with the nose picking...fingers work SO much better than those little snot suckers! My mom (yes, my mom again..lol) has this *joke* she does whenever she sees a baby crying due to hunger. She'll go up to the parents (and they are people we know, not random strangers) and ask if she can breastfeed the baby because maybe they want *chocolate milk*...and everyone just laughs and laughs. Me? Not so much cause I think its gross. As if we pump out chocolate milk instead of white! Good Grief.
My favorite is the bonding with baby one. lol.. cute series.
Oh baby!!Keva, chocolate milk? Your mom must be a hoot...either that or really embarrassing. hahaha
Yep, fingers work better than the snot suckers. I really like "Waking Baby". Hey, turnabout's fair play!!!-Confusia
The nursing father reminds me of the episode of Family Guy where Peter attempts to breastfeed Stewie.
Wait. That's bad for calming the baby? -Terps
What's wrong with these?
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!! Exercising the baby is the best of the bunch! This is hillarious!
I have SO wanted to contain my children that way. I came pretty darn close to stimulating them that way today. I have certainly washed them that way. And I often pick visible nonsense out of my 2-year old's nose... so be it! Here comes DYFS!
Amy - a mom who watches FG. How cool is that?CD - thanks.All you finger pickers... same here. Who carries that sucker thing with them? Not me. But my fingers were always there and ready. I even thought about growing out my pinky nail so I could get the deeper ones. I remember many a time standing in the middle of the grocery store or the mall, half of my pinky up my poor child's nostril, her head pushed way back, eyes bulging, and her yelling, "Snop it, Naddy!!!" thru the free nostril while I dug like a monkey. But I wouldn't stop till I got what I was after.
I am laughing so hard....
This made me truly laugh out loud. I was in a public place. It was a scene. I have spent every moment of every day with my 9-month-old for the last month or so without a break. Then I read this in the three hours we were apart. Some of these I have tried, some of these I will try, some of these I will get friends to try. And that Family Guy scene with Peter feeding Stewie is one of my favorites of all time! Pulling the hair out of his mouth is priceless!
Also, I actually caught my 6-year-old nieces trying the "No" Smile Method on my baby not too long ago. I realized that left to their own devices they might try all of these.
Just found your site and I'm so glad for it! I couldn't stop laughing!! I'm going to have to forward your site to all my friends. My SIL just had her first baby two days ago; I hope she finds it as funny as I did! :)
I needed this today--the laugh, not the information. : ) Would make a good pamphlet for social services to give out to new parents--yes? :0
Ha, I got Buff a onesie of one of those from Wry Baby. Fun!
HAHA!! This is the funniest stuff I've seen in a while. It was so hard to contain my laughter while everyone else is sleeping.
Oh man this was so funny. My wife & I have a new baby (13 weeks old) and can really appreciate these things.Thanks for posting.
Thanks, all.Daniel - congrats. Always try to remember the pre-baby days when you had a life.
Yes, I have done one of these. :)I laughed so hard my coworkers had to come see.
Oh, the memories! Parenting by the trial-and-error method - it's what we all do, isn't it? My little bundle of joy didn't come with an instruction manual. You've sucked the joy of discovery out of the experience for all new parents.Mahalo for the laugh!
I am in love with you.
