When do you lay your baby down for a nap?
My Son Jayden is 8 months old. He sleeps 10-12 hours a night. Only wakes up once to eat and have a diaper change. He usually takes 3-4 naps a day. Usually wakes up around 7. Eats breakfast at 8-830. Then lays down for a nap. Sometimes it can be a cat nap 10-20 mins. Other times like today its 1 hour or longer. Then depending on when he gets hungry again. Sometimes noon he wants a bottle.Then takes a nap. 20-30 mins. Other times 2- 3 he wants lunch which is a jar of veggies and a 4oz bottle. Then he usually takes another nap when he gets done eating. Its usually a cat nap 20-40 mins. Usually after 3 he wont nap again. He stays awake till bedtime. We start his night time routine at 6:30. I hand him off to his Dad so I can pick up his toys and wash out his bowls he ate out for the day. Then I get his bath stuff ready. He gets his bath at 7. Eats his night time bottle afterwards. Takes his meds. I turn the lights out. He sits in his bouncer and hangs out. I wash bottles and make one for the middle of the night. After that I bounce him in his bouncer until he falls asleep. Which for the past few nights has been before 8 which is really unusual. He usually wont go down before 8. But the past 2 days he has. My question is...When do you lay your baby down for a nap? Is your baby exhausted until bedtime? Jayden has to have motion to sleep. Bounced or swung. If I stop he wakes up. Does your baby do that?
