Vacuum cleaners are not the only distracting sounds for my baby!  Here is an excellent, easy way to get him to be content a little longer in his crib while I'm hoisting off a load of laundry:  I can play "peek-a-boo" with him!

Here's how it works for you and your baby, too:  When you have just left your baby's room and he is starting to get upset, just poke your head back into the door way and say "peek-a-boo!" or whatever it is that makes your baby laugh, but then quickly hide behind the wall again.  After a couple seconds, pop into view again with another "Peek-a-boo!", and hide again.  Repeat this just a few more times, waiting longer between each time.  At last, you make your breakaway!  Get that laundry started!  ;)
