my Sweet baby girl will start daycare on two weeks at three months, she naps fantastically, indicates she’s tired, goes to sleep within 5 minutes, sleeps 1.5-2hrs EXCEPT she will only nap in my arms, I’ve tried to work on putting her down, but awake and drowsy has yet to work, on rare occasions I can move her from my arms to her dock a tot ONLY, anything flat on back is an instant wake up of no return. She does do her night sleep flat on back just not these pesky naps.
I’m so nervous that she won’t nap at daycare where they can’t be swaddled and have to do flat on back. Has anyone had a situation like this? Did it get better? Was it ok? I’ve heard they act different for different caretakers and I’m hoping the daycare workers have some tricks. I’m disappointed I couldn’t get her there here at the end of my leave and I just have these haunting visions of her awake for 8 hours crying at daycare 😭.
