Last week I stumbled upon a brilliant solution for keeping a younger baby occupied while getting housework or cooking done:
The laundry basket! Why didn't I think of it before???
It's perfect for little ones just learning to sit up, because they are happier than being in a chair, all of their toys stay right within their reach, and if they lose their balance, they don't have far to fall (I just add the blanket in for a bit of extra padding). It's also so easy to move if you are heading to a different area of the house.
I thought I was so creative, until I mentioned it to a mom of 6 who just brightly said "yeah, doesn't that work great?". Hmm, maybe I'm not so original after all. :)
