at 8 months she was taking 4 naps 8a, 1030, 1230p, and 4 but those naps were getting shorter and harder to come by. (We would hold her for 45 min then put her in the crib for a 30 min nap). So we decided to push her morning nap until later and drop from 4--> 3 naps a day. At first things went really well, she fell asleep faster and stayed asleep longer (up to 1.5 hrs). Then our schedules changed and she started spending some afternoons with nana. Those afternoon naps disappeared. My husband and I tried to talk with nana. We explained how we put her to sleep, offered to bring things from our place to make the sleep environment the same. Nana told us she has her own way of doing things; nana tried it our way (And it WORKED!) but she did not care to repeat it. We sing, rock, then cover her face with a cloth diaper to help her sleep. Once asleep we take the diaper off.
last week same thing, drop kiddo off , explain she needs a nap, pick up 2.5hrs later kiddo is not happy. Usually DD waits until we are in the car but this time she had a meltdown At nana's house and she was able to see how frustrated DD gets with lack of sleep. And momma bear was mad
