  • You need to get him on a regular sleep schedule, by laying him down at he same time every day. I ran a daycare and all my kids napped at the same time. They get used to it after awhile and you dont want him laying down too late, try after lunch and if you have to lay down with him awhile until he falls asleep.

  • my son was I THINK on a schedule of napping at 9 1 and 4 at this age.. then it went to 10 and 3 around 6 months - a schedule does help so getting him on a regular sleep schedule will help some YOU time.. I napped whenever I could...

  • they all take a nap after lunch so usually 12:30 ish and they sleep 2-3 hours. They are 4, 3, and 19 months.

  • Definitely the routine suggestion!

    It takes 7 repetitions for anything to become routine so it may take a week, don't give up, keep at it.
