Hi, me again, ( sorry)
so we are working on W2S and nap #1 is going well, but nap #2 and #3 she isn't responding to w2s
Not sure if we are still getting the timing wrong or what. We go in at 30 minutes, stroke her face and get her to twitch or move in some way, gently pat and she goes back down, 5-10 minutes later she is awake from her nap, and then we resume shush patting for about 45 minutes --till its time to Eat. Very frustrating.
1. When does shush pat stick? I feel like my LO can put her self to sleep initially, but cannot put her self BACK to sleep mid nap. To me, this was what I liked at BW, it taught my LO how to sleep/ put herself to sleep?
2. any other thoughts? maybe she is just a short napper? should I increase her A beyond 1.5 hours?
3. What if I hold her in my arms while she is in deep sleep at the 30 minute mark and hold her for like 15 minutes to see if she can transition btw sleep cycles in my arms? She used to love sleeping on us . . . ( I realize this sounds silly/ crazy, but I just want her to nap well) Does this defeat the purpose of sleeping independently? not sure . . .
