Day 47 - A Clean House is a Quiet House

Today's Tip - Turn on the vacuum to settle down your baby

Got a screaming infant who won't stop being fussy? Turn on the vacuum. Ours settles right down when we start cleaning, and usually he falls right to sleep too. It seems to work where all our other tricks won't, and if he doesn't stop crying right away, the sound makes the crying a little more bearable.

Hi there! Our site is pretty similar to yours - but we focus on fun for mom, more than tips. Anyhow, you should come see it.

As for the use of white noise - I'm closing in on Day 500 and my son still sleeps with a white noise machine, day and night. Check out our list of must -have supplies for details:

our 10 month old has developed an aversion to loud noises, including the vacuum. Turn on the food processor, vaccuum, or even the leaf blower outside and he starts crying his head off. We're lucky though, that's actually one of the few times he cries like that.

Love your site and your tips.

We have a great list of sleeping ideas from other parents on Minti - not sure if you have been by there but it could be a great way to get more traffic to your site :)

Keep up the great tip writing !
