This answer belonged here.
Have you tried the bouncy chairs with the fun things to grab and look at and some rattles easy enough to hold and play with. Maybe a baby gym and a swing with neat thing to look at? Baby are into looking and learning alot of things now. Maybe a swing with kids music on while you try to do what you need to do. You can try the snugglies. I found that doing that never gave me a moment to myself till my kids where much older. Then with my other children who I did try other forms of distractions while i tried to do stuff. They ended up a bit more independant and technical inclined then my first who I snugglied for everything. Both are doing great. So both ways work. None makes you be a bad mom. So keep trying:D
