Re: Entertaining a 5mo?
my 8mo was in hardcore teething mode last week, so I feel your pain. one day though I put her in the moby wrap b/c she was only happy being held. I was wearing a nursing tank so decided to try nursing in the front hug hold even though we hadn't ever done that before. it ROCKED! she stayed latched on for like half an hour, which is forever these days -- her nursing sessions are uber-efficient 10-minute drive throughs.
I used one of the shoulder straps to hold a frozen washcloth in place when she was finished nursing and she liked being able to chew on it whenever she wanted. In the meantime I got dinner ready for my 4yo and did dishes.
