I am desperately in need of some help with figuring out naps for my 12 month old son. Long story short I was exhausted after he was born (he's my second) and ended up taking an afternoon nap with him when his older brother would sleep. I have been trying to break this habit but nothing is really working. I spoke to my pediatrician about it at his year check up and he told me to put him in his crib, say goodnight, and walk out and let him cry. I've been trying to do that because I know he needs to learn to fall asleep on his own, but that's the problem...he never falls asleep! He just cries and cries and when I eventually go in to get him he just goes about his day. On Friday that meant he didn't nap all day!! I am still nursing and he nurses at night and then goes right to bed without issues but does not do the same for naps for some reason. I stay at home with my boys and I REALLY need some time each day that both of them are sleeping....you SAHM get me I'm sure! Any advice is welcome!!!
