Wondering how much time is ok in the devices. Generally she won't tolerate them for long anyway but I feel guilty using them even for a short while. But what don't I feel guilty about these days?

Do you generally hold your baby the entire time she is awake?

Mine will tolerate it for about five min. And when she starts to get upset you had better get her quick cuz once she gets going she is hard to calm.

Tyler sleeps at night in the mamaroo, so I try to limit it during the day. I also use the bouncer when I'm taking a shower and don't want him to tire of it, so only put him in it then. I try to hold or wear him most of the time...well really he spends a quarter of the day on my lap stuck to my boob

She would like it that way but I'm trying to break her of that because I need to get stuff done.

On a good day, Samantha will do anywhere from 10-30 minutes happy in her bouncer. Maybe 10-20 in her swing. And anywhere from 5-30 on the floor, combination of tummy time & on her back.
Bad/ fussy day she will only do these when she is alseep or for very short times as long as her binki is in.

Thank you for the amazing siggy *Kiliki*

If she's awake and happy she'll spend anywhere from 30 min to 1 hr in the bouncer. She doesn't seem to like the swing much.
I try not to hold her when she's sleeping

Dont worry about it. Before long they will be rolling and crawling everywhere you will wish that you could just strap them in a swing.

I honestly dont keep track of how much B spends in each place.... Most of his day is with me nursing him, then if I think he's tired Ill put him in the swing (and he'll sleep in there), if we go anywhere or if Im doing housework he's in the Moby (I seriously dont know how any of yall get anything done without one!).... He doesnt seem to mind.

Like Hilary, I don't keep track of how long she stays content when in the swing or bouncer. We just kinda go with the flow. But with DS, I did feel guilty when not holding him, but he remained super clingy till just recently, so with Dalya I'm hoping more time alone will make for a less clingy tot!

It varies. Lately she doesn't seem content any one place for longer than 30 minutes. But I'm guilty of just picking her up anyway.

I must admit that Alli does spend a lot of time in her swing. She seems most content there and since she has acid reflux to the extreme, the swings upright position seems to really help with that. But if she's not in the swing than I am usually holding her.
