So it seems like no matter what time C takes his last nap, how long he sleeps , whether he has an evening nap or skips it all together, he is still super cranky before bed time. We have a pretty good bedtime routine with a little tummy time/playing, singing and reading books before I nurse him and put him to bed. Every other night we do a bath, but that doesn't seem to make a difference on his crankiness. He goes down for bed around 6, but starts getting cranky around 5. I would think an evening nap would help avoid this, but it seems like even the days he takes a nap around 4 or so and sleeps for his usual 30 minutes, he is still cranky. It makes bedtime no fun because he just fusses and cries. And I really want bedtime to be enjoyable since I'm going to start working more and won't have tons of time to spend with him.
Does anyone have any advice on how we could keep him happier for bed time?
