  • 30 minutes is still a nap to my son, 3 months old. If he makes it an hour I have to check to make sure he is still in there. so maybe his getting enough sleep by the end of the day and is phasing this nap out or changing up the routine. It will continue to change for the first few years

  • It's a phase...and a terrible one. My son went on strike from sleeping in the day and at night.. My doctor said that it is because he is getting to an age where he learns that he has some control in his life and actions so he will try to use that control. The phase didn't last long but sad to say he still does it once in awhile. Wait until he decides he doesn't want to eat anymore!!! LOL Good Luck!
