Feeds & the 2 - 1
« on: March 10, 2013, 22:41:08 pm »
So, we've hit the 2 - 1 transition...yippee! (NOT!) LOL :P

I've been trying to do the long AM nap/short PM nap combo and it just really isn't working.  Ladies on the nap board suggested I try the reverse of short AM/long PM.  I am going to *try* to attempt a short nap (40mins) at 9:30am and a long PM nap at 1pm.

So...our bottle feeds are generally 7am - 2:15pm - 7pm give or take depending on the day.  So, provided he is having a nice loooong nap in the afternoon (ie. 1pm - 3pm) where do I put that 2:15pm bottle?  Before the nap? After?  I'm worried that if I do it after he won't be full enough through the nap, but if I do it before, it's a long stretch until the BT bottle.

I would pull lunch earlier to 11am and then do the bottle before the PM nap :)

Okay, thanks.  He starts daycare in about 1.5 months so I think that is more in line with what they do there (earlier lunch and nap at 1pm), so it might be good to get him on a similar schedule now :)
