Short evening naps?
« on: December 14, 2018, 15:26:03 pm »
if she's taking short evening naps, could i cut her first nap from 1:45 to 1:30 and then she'll add those 15 mins on to her evening nap?

Her naps would go from 1:45, 1:30, 1:15, :45 to 1:30, 1:30, 1:15, 1:00... right now, her last nap is lasting anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes so I'm hoping that by shortening the first that she'll keep or elongate the last.

Make sense? Or maybe it's time for a new schedule? We've had this once since she was about 9/10 weeks and she'll be 13 weeks tomorrow. We're going to be transitioning into the crib for naps starting on Monday (she sleeps in her Mamaroo next to the crib with the movement off and has been for about a week but she's starting to slide to the bottom so that she's laying flat so I assume she's ready for the transition) and then when she's been there for about two weeks, I'll remove her swaddle (first with her dominant arm and then her non-dominant arm and then both), and at 4 months, I'll move her to her crib permanently- for naps and nighttime. I am trying to smoothly do the transitions. 

This is her day:

Wake 7:30
Wake until 8:45 (1:15)
Nap 1 8:45-10:30 (1:45)

Wake 10:30
Wake until 11:45 (1:15)
Nap 2 11:45-1:15 (1:30)

Wake 1:15
Wake until 2:45 (1:30)
Nap 3 2:45-4 (1:15)

Wake 4
Wake until 5:30

Nap 4 5:30 for (45 mins)

Wake 6:15
Wake until bedtime
Bedtime routine starts 7:30
Sleep 8-8:30
MOTN at 3:30/4:30
Sleep until DWT

Sleep: 5 hr 15min

Sorry this post got missed

Wow you are very lucky to have such a great routine.

The short last nap is normal, the last one is often a catnap when they are getting ready to move to one less nap.

By now you'd probably be getting to the point of close to 2 hours Awake time & 3 naps.
