Sounds like you’re doing your best. I have cabin fever too. I am also in a 1-bedroom with my husband and nowhere to hide. He liked to sing to himself while he works. I tell him to stop, he does briefly, and then starts again. Repeat 5 x daily.

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting).

She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
