New Mommy Advice....Part 2
I know how nice it is when your baby is sleeping. You feel like you finally have some time for yourself. I personally do think that you need to get your baby used to being able to take a nap while there is noise going on around them. If you don't, then you're going to drive yourself crazy by always having to be home in a quiet environment for your baby to sleep in. You can not let your baby get used to things that are not realistic. There is NO WAY that you will have your baby sleeping in his or her bed during each and every nap that they will take. You have to be able to run errands with your child and if it runs into their nap time a little bit, it should not be a big deal....he or she should be able to sleep in their carseat until you get him/her home to in their bed. I know some people don't turn on the TV or even let the phone ring or anything while their baby is sleeping, but you are creating a bad habit for you and your baby.
