I know how to perform a disappearing act...that is, I know a little trick to make your baby's cries DISAPPEAR into Thin AIR no matter where you are (without having to whip out the boob).
Need to get ready to go somewhere but your baby's ceaseless cries are holding you back? Strap your baby in a bouncer, chair or car seat and bring them into the bathroom with you while you dry your hair!! Baby will LOVE the sound of the hairdryer...ahhhh it reminds them of the womb.
Need to do some cleaning around the house but baby won't let you put him/her down? Wrap him/her up in a woven wrap, sling or baby bjorn and do some vacuuming! Baby will love the humm of the vacuum while you get 'dem floors clean....ahhhhh it reminds them of the womb.
Driving to the store/daycare/appointment (whatever) and your poor little one is screaming their little head off in the back seat and you feel terrible because you can't see them or do anything while you're driving??? Turn the dial on your radio to STATIC and crank up the volume...baby might just be soothed to sleep by clashing radio waves....ahhh it reminds them of the womb.
Okay...you might already know all these white noise secrets. But what if you're in church? Or at the store? Or in a restaurant? Or at a friends house? Or somewhere where you can't just grab a vacuum, hairdryer or radio??? Well that's when you'll be thankful you have a droid phone or iphone...
Mommies download App "Baby Soothing Sounds" Now!!! Seriously...it's amazing. Or as my mother-in-law says "It's Like Magic!" Now you can have the soothing sounds of hairdryers, vacuums, radio static, tv static, crinkling plastic bags, running water, even slurping soup (?!/!?) wherever you go!! Whenever G is fussing and I don't have time to nurse...I turn that baby on and set my phone next to his ear...and wallah!!! Silent, content baby!

*Note: This may not work for every baby...but it's the magic charm for G!!
