Consolidating two naps to one
If he's wide awake after 15 without fluttering eyelids, we give in and pick him up. Also depending on how many naps your lo takes, that determines how long you want to keep him or her up between naps.
If after the full 20 minutes when he did have fluttering eyelids, he's still wide awake, then again we give in. For example, if that baby takes 3 naps a day, then 2 hours is how long to keep him or her up.
We have tried keeping her up ,after at night so she would sleep later in the morning, but that has not worked out.
Hi moms, My DD is 16 months old and for the past few weeks is only taking her afternoon second nap about 40% of the time.
For instance, many 7 month olds take a 3rd catnap late in the afternoon, as they transition to a two-nap-a-day schedule.
This catnap is not a problem, provided the other 2 naps are an hour or more. Not all babies consolidate their naps easily (or at all, for that matter!
She sleeps 7pm to 6am, and is usually ready for her first nap around 8-9.
I am starting to wonder if we should just cut that nap because it is occurring so late. Whatever name you give them, short naps can feel like the bane of your existence as a mom or dad. Those are the questions we are tackling in today’s blog article. A short nap is a nap that’s less than an hour long. ) Second, let’s be clear about something: short naps are not unusual, or abnormal, for newborns. And (most importantly) – is this a problem you can fix? Most parents can expect 1 – 1.5 hours for a long nap, although some babies and toddlers will take longer naps (especially toddlers who have transitioned to just one afternoon nap – those naps can be as long as 2-3 hours!By the time your baby is a toddler, she will be taking one long nap in the middle of the day.Third, remember that older babies may take a catnap each day when they’re approaching (or in the midst of) a nap transition.

What signs did your LO display when they were ready to go from 2-1 Naps? I ask because LO at least half the time is resistant to morning nap. Today for example he skipped t altogether and wouldn't go down until around noon!
