I just realised that having a second child doesn’t mean you can replicate exactly what you did with your first kid.
When Joshua was a wee bub incapable of flipping himself over yet, we would lay him down on the couch or on a mattress we placed on the floor.
But now with Keegan coming in August, it suddenly hit me that there was no way in bloody hell I could have him safe on the couch nor on the floor.
First of all, there’s the ever-curious sniffing kitty that we have to be wary of. And most importantly, the active big brother who might accidentally hit or step on his baby brother whilst dancing to his favourite cartoon tunes.
And if Keegan was to lay on the couch, I have no idea how Joshua would be able to climb on and perch himself on the couch at the same time without somehow pushing the baby over.
Somehow my preggy brain chances on these very crucial realisations at odd hours of the night only. (And I have to blog them down so I don’t forget them a few hours later.)
So… I’m starting to see a need for a place to keep Keegan safe away from these dangerous creatures around the house. And right now, I’m considering getting an infant to toddler rocker thingy like this one:
Or we could go old-skool (read: budget) and get those basic wire-framed and netted ones that our parents used with us. (These are so blardy old-skool I couldn’t even find a stupid photo of it via Google Image Search.)
Of course, if I could really splurge, I would definitely go for the BloomBaby rocker.
Sibei fucking sui arh! Needless to say, the monetary value is obviously on par with the aesthetic value. 😕 The price ain’t stated at the webpage I’ve linked to, but don’t ask. The price is CRAZY.
