  • Well here it is noon so i am getting ready to feed the kids and we will see if we have any problems with naps after that. I will say that only one seems like he is ready for a nap though.

  • My one year old has no problem but my 2 year olds are getting to that age where they don't really want to take naps in the morning and they want to take it in the afternoon.

  • We will soon see. I am giving her lunch late so that it will have be the same time as normal for her tummy and nap time will probably be an hour later as well. We will see what happens this afternoon with Daddy b/c I will be at work.

  • Naps don't happen in my house but I'm wondering what tonight is going to be like.

  • No, I adjusted the morning nap by 1/2 hour and we're adjusting the afternoon nap by 1/2 hour, by bedtime they'll be right back on schedule.

  • We always do. I usually adjust the time (forward or back depending on which time change it is) about 15-20 minutes per day for about a week until he gets used to the new time. Sometimes I even start the process a day or two before the actual time change. I like DST once we adjust to it, but I always dread the change.

  • Not with the nap time. My 2 1/2 year old slept 3 hours! However, going to bed was a challenge. He didn't want to get ready for bed until it was dark outside. =)
