Nearly 11 month old - 2 - 1 nap transition struggle
« on: May 17, 2017, 13:50:49 pm »
Hello all my little boy is 1 week shy of turning 11 months. At 10 months sleep went wonky so I read the thread and decided to proceed with shortening the AM nap, since with my 2 year old DD around they could both take an afternoon nap at the same time (and give me a well deserved break!)

Since starting to cap the morning nap however I have not got decent naps since so could really do with some help to point out where my routine is going wrong.

Here are some sample days in a row:

WU 6 in bed till 6.30
N1: 9.40 - 10.25 I woke him
N2: 1.40 - 2.56
BT 6.20  (lots eye rubbing at 5.30??)

NW 7.15, 12.10, 3ish for feed

WU: 6.10 in bed till 6.30
N1: 9.45 - 10.30 I woke him
N2: 1.50 - 2.25 resettled 2.35 - 3.25
BT 7.05 tried for 6.30 lots of standing in cot

NW 9.50, 11, 12.20, 2ish feed

WU: 5.37 in bed until 7 (I fell asleep myself oops!)
N1: 10 - 10.37 woke himself
N2: 2.05 - 3.25
BT 7.05 tried for 6.30

NW 8.45, 10.15, 1ish feed, 5.15

WU 6

Etc etc!

Just yesyerday after an early night he slept great all night and woke up at 6.30. So I thought right this is it time to get things back on track. But he did this:

WU 6.30
N1: 9.37 - 10.22 i woke him
N2: 1.35 (tried for 1.20) - 2.05 woke settled again 2.25 woke settled again 3 woke
6.45 BT

NW 1.30 feed

WU 5.23?!

So back to early wakings again for no reason that I can see.

If anyone can see anything or help that would be great, the only solution I have in mind is to cut the morning nap even shorter to 30 mins but scared incase things get worse!

sorry to see you didnt' get any replies yet.
My first thought is that perhaps your DS would do better with a long morning nap and a apped afternoon nap, the longer A time in the morning (with longer nap to follow) could help to discourage the earlier waking. But I can certainly see why you'd liketo go for the long afternoon nap for them both to go to sleep and you get a break!!

With that in mind then. How about increasing the second A time to really make sure you get him tired enough to take a goo nap then.  he could sleep as long as he likes and then BT could move a bit later which would hopefully also lead to later WU and the first nap could be altered accordingly.

TBH nap drops are often messy but you'll get there!
