I posted this in Sepetember as well (different title) - but I thought maybe I'd get a better response here.
So my nine month old is SUPER social. SHE LOVES DAYCARE and I'm so happy.. but.. she needs more then 2 twenty minute naps in a 6.5 hour period at "school" because its KILLING her nighttime sleep (and thus mine)
We've been working on "sleep training" for 2 weeks and so I'm not going in to tend to her hardly at all - but she is still waking up a ton (last night it was at least 5-6 times) - yes she settles herself back down... for a while.. but we are both still waking up (me when I hear her)
I've talked to daycare and they are at a loss - she just is too excited to play with friends to sleep.
Anyone have ideas on how to get her to nap longer at school OR how to handle evenings / night time to help her sleep better? (I pick up between 3:30 - 4:00 and she normally takes a 40 minutes to 2 hour nap when she gets home)
