Napping issues again!

Will it ever stop? Just when you think everything is going smoothly something has to happen. Granted, napping seems to always be a crap shoot anyway but for a while, it was fantastic! An hour in the morning & an hour to 1.5 hrs in the afternoon. Now, not so much.

Last week they were doing fantastically well w/ their am nap, so well that I thought they were sleeping a bit longer than normal. No biggie, right? I chalked it up to t a growth spurt but then I started seeing the afternoon nap not happen. They would talk the whole time which lead to sleeping during the walk. They weren't cranky though. I can handle it if they aren't cranky.

Then we started this week. Bleh. They decide that morning naps aren't what they want so rather than just talking, they cried. Yep, to the point where yesterday Sofi was so cranky that nothing could comfort her.

So, we are struggling. I can only imagine the multitude of things it can be. Separation anxiety, teething molars, or wanting to go down to 1 nap. What ever the reason, this mama needs for it to get resolved quickly! Mama needs some down time.

Here are a few pics of the kids at the party that my neighbor took w/ her awesome camera!








After they had their cake, we put them in the baby pool & my neighbor's daughter, Katie, took these shots. LOVE THEM!

could it be that they're ready for no morning nap and just take a big 'ole afternoon nap (2hrs) after lunch? seems like mine both did one-a-days by the time they were 1yr. just wait: they go to NO NAPS before you know it. now that, my friend, truly sucks.

Yep, could very well be they are ready for 1 nap. Problem is I'm not. ACK!

the transition from 2 naps to one is soo hard. the transition from 1 nap to NONE is SO MUCH WORSE! AHHH!

My 19 month old goes to bed at night at 7, wakes up around 7, and takes a 2 hour nap from around 11-1.

(only because ihave to do preschool pickup at 1, otherwise 12-2 would probably be more ideal.)

good luck! cant imagine it will be easy but it will pass before you know it!

My older twins started napping only once around 13 months. They would take a 2-3 hour nap midday and thats all they needed.
Sounds to me like they are ready to cut 1 of their naps out

Surviving Triplets said...

Bleh. I'm not ready to cut out the nap. Man, how am I suppose to do this? Keep them up longer, put them down & hope they sleep more? I'm so confused!

Definitely at one point naps are a problem. From 2 naps to just one, its hard.

Great pictures.
