when elijah cries because he’s sleepy, i hold him in my arms and rock him until he falls asleep. he moves his arms around uncontrollably. it looks like he has at least ten arms. it could be eleven. after about 15 – 20 minutes of rocking and whispering, he usually falls asleep and his arms go back to two.
my third leg is for extra support to keep a balance as i rock.
at the end of the day when my arms turn into logs, i use a babybjorn. he can swing his arms as much as he wants until he falls asleep. i’m thinking i should make additional nine holes in the babybjorn so that he can put his eleven arms comfortably.
