    An unbreakable mirror might be helpful. Does the duck like music? You might leave a . . . what do we call music-making devices nowadays? I used to call it a stereo. Maybe it's an MP3 player now.

    A washable stuffed toy might help.

    Can you get some kind of remote baby monitor so you can check on the little one? My nephew has a phone app.
