Aren't they so beautiful when they sleep... I mean. IF they sleep. Do yours sleep? Mine used to. Sigh, I remember those days so well.
You see, Alice was a straight forward napper. She went from lots of naps, to 3 solid naps, down to 2 a day and finally one long one after lunch time which she kept until she was about 23 months old. I never knew I had such an easy napper, and I completely took it for granted. That's what having another child is for I suppose. Reality check.
Up until a few weeks ago Thomas was on 2 naps. He started to drop his morning one, like they do at around 16 months, and so I cut it out so he could have one solid nap a day. Of course, he doesn't seem to want that one nap a day at all. He slept well for about a week, until he decided he was ready for no naps at all in the day.
I've tried everything. And the thing is, all signs point to the view that he may indeed be ready for no naps. He's not overly tired in the afternoons. He doesn't drift off during dinner, or on the nursery run. His night time sleep is good! He's a pretty solid sleep through from 7pm to about half 6 the next morning. He wakes up happy. I mean... COME ON!
Because although he might be ready to drop his one and only nap, I'm not sure I am! Eek!
So, my days have suddenly become a lot more full, noisy and hectic. But I'll adapt. I mean, I will right? I have to? Does it get easier? I can't remember...
Why won't he nap! Argh!!!!
