Consolidating two naps to one ending a casual dating relationship
I hear questions like: “He’s a year old now, so shouldn’t we be dropping to one nap soon?
” or “She actually hasn’t been falling asleep for the second nap for several days now. ” The truth of the matter is that when babies are ready, we actually transition to one nap by consolidating the two naps (morning and afternoon) into one nap.
Thought #3 – Patience and consistency are a must during nap transition.
Keeping track of her sleep by logging daily is a good way to understand what your baby’s sleep needs are.
This book outlines healthy sleep needs (how many naps, how many hours of sleep per nap and per night, how to solve sleep issues, etc.) for every month of the child's age all the way through adolescence.
The book is organized into sections based upon your child's age, so you don't have to read the whole book..the sections relevant to your child. My kid was doing that at that age too, she just turned four months and finally her naps are lasting two hours.
Here are some thoughts to consider before making the leap and dropping from two naps to one: Thought #1 – Don’t transition before your child is ready.
There should be no rush in transitioning to one nap.
