I feel like we are in a good spot where Edison is sleeping great at night. He gets up once around 5 or sometimes not at all, and wakes up at 7. But nap time is where the struggle has been lately.
He used to be a good napper, and by good I mean 2 to 2.5 hour naps in the morning. Afternoons we are typically out and about and he gets a good 30 minutes – 1 hour nap in the car.
Lately though Edison has been napping only 45 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes ON THE DOT. I swear. How does he know?
And surprisingly you can’t get much done in an hour 🙁 Just enough time to get ready and may pick up the house so I am hoping to end this soon.
So, how do I break this record of his. I would love to get him sleeping 2-3 hours in the morning and keep is afternoon nap short.
How do I get him to sleep longer?
Currently we get up around 7 or 8 and he is down for a nap usually around 10 am.
When is a good time to start transition to one nap a day?
Or should I not stress over tying to get to one nap a day so fast? He is 10.5 months old
Would black out curtains help the situation?
We do use a white noise machine.
I also rock him to sleep every time and lay him down.
Should I put him down drowsy and make him self-soothe himself to sleep?
I feel like I am rambling a bit BUT…
I would love any or all of your input!
