2-1 transistion at 9 months?!
« on: April 04, 2017, 20:50:15 pm »
My almost 9 mo lo has been struggling with his afternoon nap now for a while. We are finally getting good morning naps 1.5 average but he's not ready for next nap until 3/330 an even then it's a struggle and he doesn't nap at all. If he does bedtime gets too late. He's usually pretty pleasant all afternoon and goes to bed easily although sometimes wakes shortly after due to ot I'm sure but be resettles quickly. Shoukd I just go with it and put him to bed early?

Easy :

A 630
E 645 bottle solids hour later
S 930-11 or 10-1130 1.5 average
E 11/1130 bottle solids about hour later
E 3 bottle solids around 430/5
E 630 bottle and to bed

Shoukd I try to have him asleep by 630? A 12 hour day with one 1.5 nap

5.30am isn't bad with 6.30 Bt, I think if you're going for 1 nap it needs to be later in the day. It's quite early for 1 nap but no unheard of.
No btdt so hopefully someone will pop by x

He finally naps well in the morning so I'm hesitant to change that plus with having to pick up older one at 1245 from school the nap time isn't very flexible. Maybe it's just a phase lol. If he even just took a short afternoon nap but it's such a struggle.

You might just have to stick with the EW and hope the phase ends then. Fingers crossed x

Should I do an early bedtime like 630 or keep 7? I just can't imagine that he's up for 7 hours straight! Today we were even in the car around 3 and he stayed awake the entire ride!

I think you will prob need to keep 6.30 until you can move the map later.

Last night he was asleep by 630 And slept until 7 am!! First nap was 10-1115 and I fit him down for second nap at 230! He was fussy and crying so I thought it couldn't hurt to try a nap it wasn't easy though some crying and resistance I had to go back once or twice (meanwhile my 3.5 year old was crying looking for me and not wanting brother to take a nap) you'd think by 8.5 months the older one wouldn't give a hard time. He's still asleep at 315 so I'm hoping for an hour nap until 330 and bed around 7 wake up tomorrow at 6 would be good 11 hrs. I always tried a nap at 3-330 maybe earlier is better although he did still struggle. Morning naps he goes right down.

So it seems that my 9 mo lo needs a 12 hour day. If he's up at 630 am he's asleep by 630 pm and if he sleeps until 7 am (which he did for one of the firsts yesterday) he won't go to bed until 7 pm. He's still only taking one morning nap about 3-3.5 hrs after he first wakes. The later he wakes the longer the first A time. So yesterday he was up at 715 am nap from 1040-12 then he's up all afternoon (yup you heard me right) until 7 pm! I've tried everything to get him to nap in afternoon and it's such a struggle even in the car he stays awake but he's pleasant and goes down to bed around 630/7. I've stopped fighting it and just learn to make do although it's a long afternoon for us all lol. In my mind at least I know I'll def get a good nap in the morning. My older one is in school and come summer camp is only until 12 so moving his nap later in the day will be tricky as I'll need to leave to pick up big kid. Wonder how that will play out.

The only thing is that when he wakes 7 or later he gives me a hard time going down for nap whereas when he wakes at 630 or earlier he goes in awake no problem no crying and falls right to sleep. Which is strange because it's still he same A time. I'm tempted to wake him by 630 am.
