I just wanted to know if anyone has done what I have done. With my 1st born who was very unsettled I used to put on the vacuum cleaner to soothe him which did work. But it was just too hard lugging it from room to room, and then I discovered the exhaust fan in the bathroom worked just as well but I couldn't take that with me as well! Then I had the perfect portable, take anywhere answer to stop my baby from crying. It came in the form of a baby monitor. I would take the parent's unit and switch it on without turning on the baby unit and it would make the same crackling noise they hear in-utero. People thought I was mad but I was desperate! Now it even works with #2. What have others resorted to?
