Monica_WeinerBaby#1 forget the batteries for the swing. Tie some string to the swing and give it a pull once in a while when your ds almost stops swaying back and forth. This is what I do for my ds,I rewfuse to but batteries. It's cheaper too. Anothr trick ids to place a blanket recieving on the baby after he has fallen sleep place him down using the warm blanket as a barrier so he doesn't wake up. Worth a try.

yeah, i sleep with my ds on the futon is his room and wake up with backaches all the time. he'll be 3 mos. on the 17th. he likes to be cradled in my arms so very uncomfortable but it's the only way we get sleep and I REFUSE TO LET HIM CIO!!!!

thats my problem also i will not let him cry and i told myself when he was first born because he was colicy that it will pa__s and soonier or later hell sleep on his own then he ended up with rsv and in the hospital for 3 days so i cant let my sick son cry but now hes perfectly normal and i need sleep but im think im goin to try to keep him awake untill hes falling asleep sitting up and then lay him down bc i tried and he slept for 10 min now he wont go back lol

Well, my husband is an electrical engineer, so he may know more about this that the average Joe, lol, but maybe you're husband does too. But my hubby somehow rigged up our swing so that it could be plugged in to the wall and not run on batteries. He screwed some little wires to some battery sized wooden cylinders and put them in the battery compartment and then made it so that it could plug into the wall and it just kept going forever, we were sick of buying batteries too because that was the only way dd would nap. Maybe see if your dh (or you!) could do something like that.
