It’s been a while since I’ve posted. We’ve been busy baking cookies, making and wrapping presents and spending time with family and friends. We’ve surived the holidays and hopefully we can get back to our slow(er), boring lives soon!!
In addition to all of the holiday buzz, we’ve been dealing with naps (or a lack of) for the last few weeks. Chloe was down to sleeping for just 30-45 minutes in the morning and then an hour to hour and a half in the afternoon and we decided maybe it was time to move to just one nap. Our sitter’s daughter was in the same position, so it seemed like it would be a good transition. It was for one of the girls. Unfortunately for us, it wasn’t our daughter that adjusted to one nap a day like a champ.
Chloe is only sleeping for 45 minutes to an hour. That makes for one cranky little girl in the evening. Quite often, she wakes up with a dirty diaper, so we tried giving her a little snack in the morning and putting her down before lunch. Didn’t matter. We’ve tried having her go potty before her nap, but she still wakes up after just an hour or so. If we snuggle her, she’ll sleep up to an extra hour, so I know she’s tired when she wakes up.
I’m hoping someone will read this and have an idea that will magically help my daugher sleep longer. So I ask, do you have any ideas for better napping??
