Re: tackling EWs
« on: August 04, 2013, 01:33:10 am »
I've been having the exact same problem Claire - EWings, yuck! Except I can't follow the exact same advice as I have the school runs to work around  ::)

Can you help me work it out too ladies?

I've been capping the AM nap for months & its been working well but just this last week we're starting to get short PM naps, I cut the AM down even more to half an hour which seems to kind of be helping but even with this we are still getting EWing. This morning it was 5:40 which was an improvement on 5am

on a school day our naps have to fit between 9:15 and 2:30 ( we get back home at 3:15) so we were doing 

9:20-10am
12:30-2:30
BT 7pm

on a non school day/weekend it was more like

9:30-10:15
1:15-3:15pm 
BT 7:15pm

On Friday I tried only half an hour from 9:20 - 9:50 and 2nd nap 12:40 she woke at 2pm but resettled herself and I woke at 2:30 BUT we still got an EWing.

I've got a feeling I might need a complete routine shake up  :-\

Hi Enna, I split your post off into a separate topic, hope you don't mind  ;).  Oh, the school run, I don't miss those!

Since she's waking so early, what about pushing her am nap later, say around 9:40 so she's up for 4 hrs for her first A, letting her do a long am nap and then doing a CN after the pm school run?  Bt might push out a little bit though.  Routine might look like this

Wu 5:40
S 9:40 to 11:20
S 3:20 to 4
Bt 7:30

Might be tight with only getting home at 3:15 and I know she was handling a long A before bt so not sure if she will fight bt.  You could cap the pm nap to 30 min if that's the case. 
What's the desired wu time?  When she's back on track, you may have to cap the am nap and then do the CN until she can handle a long enough A for the 2:1 transition.

I think you're right they're saying the same on the nap boards think my nap probs & EW seem to be all related!

It's hard with the school run.  I know you were working naps the other way so short am and LNG pm but I couldn't figure it out the other way without pushing bt out a lot.  Keep us posted on how things go.
