Yep, I'm mylotting one-handed. The other arm is supporting my baby's head while he's sleeping on my lap. I have to work but I cannot put him down on the bed because he will cry. His nanny can't carry him too, he'll cry even harder. He only wants me. My poor baby have a fever and cold and it breaks my heart to see or hear him crying so I've been carrying him for 3 hours now. He likes my lap and my arm, he's sleeping soundly... Sigh, so this is motherhood! Have you done this as well? Share your story:)

Sorry your baby isn't well. But when they are under the weather thats when they need their mum the most. I've had my share of onehanded typing ;)

I think this is really the great experience. Well, I am 8 month pregnant now, and I think I may need to do the same when my baby is born, or I will just carry my baby and watch him sleep, and stop all these computer activities. Yeah, I think it's really sad to see your baby sick, also they do not like to take medicine, right? Hope he will get well soon.

Wow! Good luck on your pregnancy! I actually do both. I like attending to my baby's needs you know, he's sooooooo cute. But there are times I have to finish some work and deadlines can be so demanding, so I have to carry him while working! It's a good thing my baby somewhat like the taste of the medicine so there's no struggle there... Have a great day.

When I was on maternity leave, I'd do the same thing. Sometimes though, I am able to put the baby down while I used the computer or did my stuff. I miss those days. There will be a lot of things you will be able to do while having a baby in your arms. LOL! Yes, motherhood is great, we become multitaskers.

I have not been overly active on myLot, because life has been crazy around here. I don't have kids, and I don't plan to. However, when you gave me a best response on the discussion about the mirror it prompted me to come back to your page. I'm glad to hear that your baby was born, and I hope all is going well.
