DS was given one of these for a present and I can recommend (also good for popping in your bag to occupy little one when waiting in a restaurant etc) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Galt-America-A3079H-Water-Animals/dp/B000UFEGUK/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1394148321&sr=8-3&keywords=Water+colouring+book
breastfeeding twins with a DD(3) and DS(5). Reading, singing, talking works whilst feeding, but mainly TV I am afraid. But doesn't have to be a bad thing, we talk about things we see on programmes, can turn it to radio for a mini disco. Would not want DD to have access to stickers whilst I am feeding, they would be on the walls/sofa etc. Won't last forever
If only the tv occupied him for longer than 2mins... He is getting back into his peppa DVDs though <hopeful>
He follows me around now, bringing toys to the sofa as I become more whale like immobile, so it's likely he'll be right next to me for bf! Perfectly happy to read books with him, he just won't let me at the moment.. He likes fiddly things...?
I was supposed to try this idea out but didn't get round to it before hand and by the time I had time was no point. I did think about it a lot though. Oh and a dvd.
I would have included stickers, a litle torch or pen light, cbeebies mag or similar with free toy - dd can spend hours with some of them, a little snack of some sort.
At one of our toddler groups we play a 'whats in the bag' game/song. With teddys/objects which resembles nursery rhymes inside and we sing the whats in the bag song, then choose a item sing its song and repeat. I have also done this whilst feeding but with imaginary bag and animals.
