mobile: help solve this sleep schedule problem
so I've been trying to get DD on a better nap schedule the past week. she was constantly taking 3040 min naps. like 5 per day. it wasn't working out well.
so I bit the bullet. committed myself to being at home for nap times and keeping her awake at all other times including not letting her fall asleep in the car if we ran out between naps.
it was going great. here's what her schedule looked like:
between 7 and 8am. wake up
10:30am to noon nap
2:45pm to 4:30pm nap
6pm dinner ::solids::
7:30pm bottle and bedtime
here's the problem: today and yesterday she has gone down for her afternoon nap and woke up at 3:30 screaming. I can't get her to go back to sleep and I can tell she's still tired. I'm holding her right now in her room while she finishes her nap because I'm desperate for her to make it until bedtime.
any advice or suggestions about what to do? it's hard to adjust the nap times too much because I don't want to lay her down with a hungry belly :/
