We've been playing this a lot:
Lots of crying but it's slowly getting better. There's moments when I can't even think straight enough to type an email or finish a small task.
She gets bored easily and needs entertainment. We will often hold her while bouncing up and down and walk around, or put her in the stroller and move it back and forth or spin in circles. Sometimes a video will keep her occupied for a limited period of time. Maybe you know of some good toys?
The bassinet...We moved her pillow arrangement into the bassinet (big Graco one), but as far as leaving her on the bassinet surface....only for brief periods of time like tummy time, but after awhile she'll fuss. I don't blame her because the firm surface doesn't feel too comfortable.
She really likes to laugh, socialize with her own sounds, and kicks, grabs things, puts everything in her mouth. She can say "mom" and working on trying to say "duck" (her favorite toy).
A penny saved is greater than a penny earned because you don't have to pay taxes on it.
