“That baby is never going to be able to go to sleep without you.”
“Don’t you want to lay him/her down so you can get some things done?”
“So you’ve come to my house to visit during your baby’s naptime. Where are you going to lay him/her down? Did you lug a portable crib? Want me to make him/her a pallet on the floor? I could pluck some chicken feathers and make him/her a nice bed in the laundry room!”
