      baby hasn't learned yet that sneaking in a nice circuit is pure-awesome and to keep quiet during said circuit? ;) (sounds a lot like Leo!!) 17 minutes is better than zero. :) do what you can with a wee baby dominating your time and don't sweat it, Chaya. well...you know what i mean...

      I liked your idea of music, I'm planning on buying a small portable speaker to see if that helps. My older daughter also hated the stroller so I think it's likely things will improve.

      I'm sure she's on the cusp of sleeping longer stretches. :) The knees will come around but probably like your baby, progress doesn't come at a nice, predictable rate. On the flip side, when it does come, it can surprise you with a big spurt! Smart plan B today!
