Another problem we are having is our LO gets way off schedule when he is at daycare. For example, he only took two naps today instead of the usual three. Not sure what we can do about this... Any suggestions?
I don't know if you really can do anything, TBH. I'm sure they try their best, but some things are likely out of your (and their) control. I've never had experience with daycare, so can't say for sure, but I think it can be dicey until a LO is on a solid two and then one nap. :-\

Sorry for my delayed reply, we've had a busier week than last week!

I'm back to thinking that the paci may not be an issue, because he did have a night in there with only the DF and one other NF. What I notice is that the nights he goes to bed OT (after too long of an A time), he has a really unsettled night (well, the last one you posted may have been unsettled because of the BM as well). On, the 29th, even though he missed a nap in daycare, he had a later CN and less than 2hr A til bed and slept a good night. Otherwise, on the other two days, his A time before bed was 5+ and almost 3hr, likely much over his capability (although I know the one day was because of a missed nap).

So, I think the best plan is to try to get 3 full naps, or 2 full and 2 CN if that's how it works from daycare... a 12-13hr day, depending on how the naps fall... no more than 2-2.5hr A time to bed after a full nap, closer to 1h45-2h after a CN. I know it's hard with not being able to control things at daycare, but try that for a week or so and see if the nights don't get a little better.
