7 month second nap
« on: April 26, 2019, 20:43:33 pm »
Hi,

Iím looking for some help with my 7 month old naps. Sheís 7 month in a few days time. She is generally a good sleeper and has been independently sleeping since 3 months old.

I can usually get a good first nap. Sheís pretty consistent with it and if she isnít, then I Exeterís a time and it usually falls back into place. However I cannot get my second nap right at all and itís making dinner and bedtime much harder as sheís so tired.

7.30
S09.20-9.40 (car)
S:10.50-12.10
S:2.20-2.40
S: 4.50-5.30 (40)
Bed 7.15 sleep 7.20 (was out all day)

Woke 7.30
Nap 10.40-12.20
nap 3.10-4.10(unsettled)
Bed 6.45 asleep in arms 6.50

Woke 5.10 fed
Woke 7.45
Nap 10.52-12.35
Nap 14.30- 3.20
Bed 6.35, 6.45 sleep

Woke 3.15 feed
Woke 7
Nap 10.14-12.25
Nap 3.30-4.30
Bed 6.50 asleep 6.55

Those are my last few days. I donít know if she is overtired or under tired for pm nap 🤷‍♀️
Thanks

Hey! Our days are similar. A one long nap, one short nap routine is fine at this time as long as it doesn't leave you with too long a gap till bed. Just going by the days you posted, it seemed like you had a better night with a short A before bed.  I'm not clear on what A time you are doing  - do you change as per her cues? As your A time keeps increasing, you would anyway be moving to 1 nap + CN routine , so don't worry too much about it. You can always opt for an early bedtime if the catnap ends too early. What do you think?

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.
She does 3hr 10mins a in the morning and I donít have a set a for the second nap and thatís because I cannot ever get it correct to get a long nap. I think she needs around 3hr 20 mins A for the afternoon but it doesnít always given a long nap. I guess you are correct about moving to one nap eventually.  My first LG went to one nap quite early as well.

She does like a short A to bed so today I had to do this

Wu: 6.50
S: 10.10-12.20
S: 14.35-15.05 (in car on way back from sensory class)
S: 5.10-5.30 (apop in car)
Bt 7.15 asleep 7.20

As she likes a short A to bed, 3.05-6 ish would have been too long on a 30 min nap so I did apop cat nap

She woke up twice that night but not sure if itís a coincidence.

I think youíre right in that a short pm nap is ok now if Iím maintaining a 7/7.30 bedtime. Yesterday I did manage this:

Wu 6.35
S 9.55-11.15
S: 14.50 - 16.10
Bed: 7.05 sleep 7.10 tired on bottle

Iím having issues with my am nap now 🙄 itís gone from 2 hours to 1 hr 20 mins and today I pushed A time from 3hr 20 min to 3hr 30 min and she did 45 min nap 😩
