with your baby during mass? I work every weekend, but would like to attend a weekday mass. I've not gone though cause I'm not sure what to do with my LO during mass. At first he was colicy and would cry all the time. Now he is better, but when he is tired it can be hit and miss with his crankiness.

What do you do or what should I do?

Your baby is 6 months old, right? Is there anyway for him to nap during Mass in his stroller? And if it's not nap time, you could just hold him in your arms. If he starts fussying, maybe you could go by the front doors and just walk with him or rock him in the stroller back and forth. I don't know if any of these things will work.

Also, is there anyway you could leave him with your husband or another family member while you take the hour to attend Mass? My husband and I, even now that the girls are older, we go separately a lot. It's not a big deal and when the girls are a bit older, of course we'll go as a family again, but with small kids it's not always possible.

I hope you find a solution. And welcome to our board, by the way! Feel free to drop by, the ladies here are nice

I brought a bottle and a couple pacifiers. When he was more interested in toys I would bring bring some quiet toys and books. If none of that worked I would go out to the outer room with him. We always go to Saturday evening mass and for a long time it worked out that he would nap most of the time during mass so he was in his seat or one of our arms.

PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

I have never taken the babies to mass, I have been fortunate enough to be able to work it out so someone is home with them, while we go since 3 infants and 2 adults plus the kids is a handful.

If I were so inclined to take them, welcome to 7:30 mass, it is a bit shorter, less crowded and I might get lucky and have them sleep through it.
