For the last 2 weeks, Isis' naps have been all messed up. She would only sleep about 30 minutes for the first nap and then less than an hour for the 2nd nap. Something just wasn't quite working. It was like she wasn't quite tired enough & she was just taking cat naps to get her through the next couple hours. We finally decided to try dropping a nap. I realized I'd rather her take one really good 2+ hour nap than 2 naps that were starting to be less than 45 minutes each.
Today, instead of putting her down at 9:30am for her first nap like we normally do, we went out for some family errands! We went to Toys R Us to get her a table to color & draw on because she's been trying to color on everything & rather than her color on my kitchen table, we decided to get her own Isis-sized table! We picked this one. It has 3 setting for size so it can grow with her & it wasn't horrible colors that clashed with my house! Then we went to Joseph Beth Booksellers to get her a book, which they didn't have (boo). We finally went to the grocery to buy some food! By the way, I have some great children's book & new recipe posts coming up inspired by my outing today!
We came home, fed her lunch around 11:00am & then put her down for a nap around noon. It's 1:40pm & she's been sleeping like a log since we put her down! She wasn't too fussy this morning, so it seems like this is what she needed. Now she'll get one really great nap & hopefully feel better all the way around!! We'll see! It's just day 1 and I've found in my last 14 months of motherhood that everything has a transition period.
How did your nap transitions go?
When did your child drop to 1 nap a day?
