I used to wonder if Kalena just never napped because of something *I* did. If I just wasn't doing something right and that's why she didn't sleep much during the day. But she was always happy, so I just didn't worry about it.
Will, on the other hand. This kid needs to nap. BUT HE DOESN'T. I have tried: the swing, the bouncer, a bed, the pack-n-play. I have: nursed to sleep, given a bottle before naps, driven him around, put him down awake. I have put him down: in a quiet room, with white noise, in the living room with lots of noise. have swaddled and not swaddled. The naps ALL SUCK. He used to take a 2 1/2 or 3 hour nap every morning. Now he won't sleep for longer than an hour. And I have NO IDEA why. His nighttime sleep is fine. (knock on wood) So I don't know what the deal is with the naps. But this really needs to change, so you guys all need to tell me your very best tricks to get a kid to nap. HELP ME!
