DS fights his naps. I can't seem to find anything that works consistently. He will spend a whole day fighting naps to the point that one day he only slept maybe 30 minutes total each nap for 3 naps during the day. The next day, he was so very cranky and just slept and slept and slept it was ridiculous. Of course, after all that catch up, the next day he was back to fighting naps again.
He sleeps wonderful at night, but I just wish we could find some balance with his naps. It doesn't matter where we are or what/how we do them. They can be in his swing, in my arms, his crib, walking somewhere, he always falls asleep for 30 minutes then wakes up and takes another 20 to fall back asleep (if he does ever fall back asleep). And yes, I have tried recreating his night time sleep. White noise and darkness.... We have even tried a small cloth over his eyes. I dread how his sleep will go once summer hits and daylight is extended.
We swaddle for naps, arms in and all, but I want to start getting his arms out and his naps are bad enough as it is... Does anyone have any advice? We just really need some balance here.
