Any ideas for what to do when rocking a baby (AKA maybe have a single free hand)? Reading on my kindle is possible, but can get a little boring and tough when rocking back and forth. Maybe I could listen to a podcast, but that requires time to setup wireless headphones (kid will pull on cord otherwise) that I don't always have.

Sometimes I stare into space while carrying my baby. Haha.

Wireless earphones are great for podcasts. Get yourself a pair if you want podcasts

the issue is having them charged up all the time, and knowing where to find them when it's time to hold baby (and having the other two kids not interrupt me constantly)

I'm not at the stage you're at (no other kids) so I don't have the same problem yet. Not sure what a good solution is.
