We have been working on nap transitions for 3 weeks now and they seem to be going well, at least well for Sydney, haha. We currently have family in town and yesterday she went from 10:45 until 5:30 bedtime awake. We went to the mall for quite a few hours and once she was tired at her normal nap time in the stroller, I had to carry her the rest of the time in the Baby Bjorn. I thought that she would for sure fall asleep on me, but no, not my girl.
On days we aren’t out and about, a good day consists of 2-1 hour naps around 9 and 1, with bedtime around 5:45 or so. Most days the 1st nap is 45 min.-1:30 and the 2nd one is usually another 45 minutes or so. At this point, I feel like I have done everything possible to soothe her, put her down at the appropriate times, etc.
I have let myself be ridden with such anxiety over her napping and schedule that it is ridiculous. If she has an off day, there is always another :). Babies schedules change so quickly anyway that if something is frustrating you, there is always something else around the corner :).
We are almost walking– Sydney has taken 2 steps, but then falls. I’m hoping walking will happen while Gma and her aunties are here within the next 10 days or so.
