I stay home all day with my 6 month old son. He wants to be involved in all that I do. Finding it hard to make time for myself. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have any advice?

I have the same problem with my 8-month-old right now. People have suggested wearing her in a sling, but that seems awfully heavy and awkward. I treasure naptime, although I work from home during those times. So I just try to enjoy my time playing with her. You can put him in a high chair near you with some Cheerios, and that will keep him occupied for a while. Maybe take walks with him so you can get out of the house, visit friends, etc... Rotate toys so he doesn't get bored, and try taking him into different rooms too. We'll miss this when they're preteens and don't want us around anymore!!!
