Hi.
Yeah asYesterday we got up later than normal when my alarm didn't go off so it threw our day off a little and their last nap wasn't til 4:30 and was going to try give them a cat nap to help get them through til b/time but was unsure. It turned out in the end that they ended didn't sleeping very well so it was an early b/time.

This is 2days ago EASY ( roughly the same for both of them)

7:35 wu
8:15 eat (3)
09:00 sleep (2.5)
12:00 eat (6)
12:50 sleep (2)
15:45 eat (4)
16:15 (2)
19:00 (5)
19:40 b/time

Nw's unsettled between 1-2 but settled and slept til 5am when I fed them.

That day looks good!
Maybe yesterday was just a one off with morning Wu being different then.

It was a good day! I was very pleased ;D Another good day today and hoping for a good night. I've realised today that I think I've been putting them down too close to when they should be sleeping instead of giving them time to settle which has given us great sleeps. If all continues I will put A time again so how they go with that.

Oh what an awful night, Lewis was wriggling from 9:30 and they were both up twice for a feed, 2am and then 5:20. I'm guessing it's a growth spurt, that's them now 6 months. Just have to ride this one out for now.

Hi, thought I would just continue with this post if that's ok. Some parts of today good and others not so good.

Lewis
07:30 wu
07:50 eat
09:00 sleep (2 hrs but woke 1.5 hrs after sleeping but went back to sleep)
11:45 eat
12:30 sleep (2hrs someone woke once in this nap got their dummy and went back to sleep so overall a good nap.)
15:00 eat ( have to feed these guys at this time as I need to pick Ayden up at nursery and Steven goes to work round about this time also.
16:00 nap 45 mins and refuses to go back to sleep, gets very upset.
Wind down begins not long after this.
18:00 eat and bed.

Leo
07:30 wu
08:00 eat
09:00 sleep (2 woke up after 45 mins but went back to sleep)
12:00 eat
12:30 sleep 2hrs (can't remember if it was Lewis or Leo that woke)
15:15 eat
16:00 sleeping as I type but very unsettled hoping he hangs in until 6.

Hi honey :)
As the nap times are pretty good I'm assuming there is a lot of re-settling going on during those nap WUs which are making you feel things are not so goo - I imagine this is exhausting settling 2 of them.
I does look to me like they are on the verge of an UT nap with those WUs at the transition. Another 10-15 min A?

Hi, yes pretty tiring now especially now Ayden has made it a game and follows me up thumping and laughing hiding under the covers etc ::) But only yesterday did it finally show that he has a bad cold and that's why he has been acting up.

I agree another A time increase is definitely needed, it feels like not that long ago they could only stay awake an hour and now almost 2!

This morning I woke hearing Lewis awake at 07:05 not sure how long he had been awake for so I think possibly 5 mins so I woke Leo also. As the hours are now pushed up does that now mean catnaps for the afternoon or could we possibly squeeze in 3 naps still?

I've had a quick note of today if they sleep.

07:00 wu
07:40 eat
08:55 sleep 2hrs ( I was intending 5 mins before but Lewis had a explosive poo incident ::))
11:30 eat
12:40 sleep 2hrs
15:30 eat
16:25 sleep 2hrs ( will this 2 nap interfere with bed?)
19:30 eat
20:10 bed

Ok thanks. Naps have improved but still getting some waking so. I think 2hrs A time should do it but in a couple of days when they have had a few days to get used to this A time.Nw's are back to where they used to be around 2:30/3 which is great.

But if a later wu this morning of 7:30 (my alarm went off at 7 but I just couldn't get out of bed) with the longer A time may have to cut the last nap and make it a slightly earlier b/time.

First two naps were ok, still had some wakings and this afternoons one Lewis woke after 1hr and refused to go back to sleep. I'm just wondering how much more A time they need.

Does there seem to be any pattern to the A times? It looks like:
1st A 2hr
2nd A 1hr 45/50 (I think you're doing 1hr 40 here and maybe needs an increase?)
3rd A 1hr 45
4th A 1hr 45

If things get too close to BT how about capping the last nap at 1 hr or giving just a CN? This would mean you could reduce the A time before it and still have time for E and BT routine before they need to sleep again.

That's probably my miscalculating! I defietley think 2 hrs is going to be good here, maybe even another 15. A cat nap sounds good, how much do you think for A time before bed after 1hr?
