Another challenge for me is getting a baby that is fighting sleep to relax into sleep. That is a huge challenge in a room with 8 babies on different schedules. Even with several workers, the noise level is too much for some of the babes. That problem was resolved yesterday by a stroller ride for some of the small ones. They did not always go to sleep, but were calm and resting. At least till well meaning people lifted the blanket "just to take a peep". Today we tried an approach of taking the babes into a quite room with low lighting and no talking adults or babies. No peepers, either.

Mondays stroller rolling lasted for about 2 hours for me. The other ladies would swap out the calmest child with an upset child and away we would roll. Lots of good exercise for the "affected knee. Today was the rocking chair for most of the day. Not that I rocked the whole time. The rocking in the main room with all the noise did work for about 20 minutes with one baby that was "walked" to sleep by another person. Then to the quite room for two hard core sleep fighters. The first child slept in my arms for 40 minutes. The next one was in my arms sleeping for almost that long.
