My munchking sleeps wonderfully at night and has started to completely sleep through the night. Ok by started I mean, he's done it twice in the past three days. If and when he does wake up in the middle of the night, he is hungry so he eats and goes back to bed no problem. Naps, on the other hand are a different story. Actually he does ok with his morning nap. The afternoon nap is torture. He gets whiney at everything and so I think ok time for a nap. By this point, he has been awake for 2 hours. Yeah, no nap is his plan. He fights and crys and screams. I try to leave him in his crib and soothe him every few minutes, but he just keeps crying. I try to rock, and he crys some more. I will try to nurse and won't fall asleep. Eventually though (an hour or so of nap fighting), he will nurse and fall asleep.
Maybe his whiney is just boredom and he wasn't ready for a nap yet? He is just so confusing, because he will rub his eyes and snuggle on my shoulder but will not fall asleep. Anyone else have this problem?
