TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

I know this is way off topic but

You guys are the only people who I feel give the best advice and actually answer my questions =]

Anywho

We are kinda going back and forth with phasing out ds nap it seems. He wakes up at 8 am, naps at 3pm, sleeps an hr (if that) and is in bed/asleep at 9.

If he doesn't nap, he gets cranky around 5/6pm and ends up passing out on the couch or if we are in the car. Even if he sleeps no more than 10/20minutes in the car, he doesn't fall asleep at night till 10/11... Which just can't be happening

My problem is the past couple days he hasn't taken a nap. Tonight and last night he's woken up at midnight. Just wakes up and acts like all he did was nap. Last night he was up for about an hour before going back to sleep. We'll see how tonight goes....

I don't know what to do. Do i keep the nap? Continue to not let him nap? He obviously can't be waking up every night like this. He's not waking up from nightmares and it's not night terrors. I can't put ds down for nap earlier because then he just won't nap.

.......thoughts?

Thanks! I probably will. Just curious, do you feel that his nap is too late in the day?

I'll try working his naps backwards. My aunt had quiet time for her daughter and she would look through books and play quietly with her stuffies and sometimes fell asleep. My ds won't stay in his room long enough and do that, lol we've tried. Thanks though!

my daughter does this too, she is 19 months. We never forced bed times or naps, she put herself on her own schedule. Somedays she is really good and other days we fight it. Best thing is to remain calm and patient. They know anxiety and also make sure all noise is down, dont bring attention to the fact they are awake...hope you get some sleep!

not really to late in the day. Especially since he only naps for a hour.
