The iPod as a Baby Sleep Aid
Well, this is a big duh, of course, but having an MP3 player like an iPod is essential to the task of nighttime awakenings or even naptime. After the routine of sleep — teeth, diaper, changing, and stories — I still rock Boobaby to sleep with a bottle. (Yeah, yeah, I know.)
For her part, Boo will do her best to engage and involve me. Having an iPod with the latest NPR shows, TED talks, or old-time radio detective stories loaded means I can blissfully check out while she does, too.
