Roo turns 9 months old on Thursday and I think she’s ready to drop a nap. She has always been a good nighttime sleeper, in spite of waking to eat. Even when we were co-sleeping, she was a good sleeper. It was just hard on me.
These days, she goes to bed between 6:30-7pm, depending on what we’ve done that day. She goes to sleep almost immediately and sleeps until 6:30-7am. She wakes up to nurse once between 12-4am. Though, the past few nights, she has slept through the ENTIRE night! I wake up engorged because she hasn’t nursed in 12 hours. I love the sleep though!
Over the last month, her nap schedule has evolved into needing to nap after being awake for about two hours. She will then sleep for 30-85 minutes – more like the 40 minute range. This schedule means she wants three naps a day.
However, the last few days, with sleeping through the night, she has been fighting the third nap like crazy. And, her first two naps are on the longer side of things.
Is she telling me that she doesn’t want the third nap? How old was your little one when they transitioned to two naps a day? How much time are they up between sleep times?
