I'll leave the cow up there but I'm not adding any more. I'm going to see if I can find the video. It's in another language but it's eye opening.

Definitely a valuable video. I was reading something that said that we as a culture tend to overstimulate babies. My son seemed to be OK with everything but Melanie will actually turn her head away. I've actually removed all the toys that hang in front of her face in her bouncy chair and her car seat/stroller and she is so much calmer. I'll probably put them back up when she gets older. She's really happy just looking at me, her hands, or whatever is passing by us. I do keep a toy or two in the diaper bag for her to play with if she's in the mood though.
