Naps Again (Sorry)

So yeah sorry the substance of my blog lately has been: Allergies/Rash, Photo Spamming, and Naps. I'll try to write about something more interesting soon. Oh wait, I totally posted about maple syrup and baby led weaning so I am golden, never mind all that.

Maybe I'm just self conscious because this is like my 3rd or 4th post about naps. I just feel like as soon as I think I've got it figured out it changes. Maybe this is parenthood, though, when 1/4 of your mental energy is focused on naps?


So I thought his naps were going sort of like:
9:30, 11:30, 2:30, 5:30

But then a lot of times he would wake up at like 6:30, eat a lot, get diaper changed, be awake and playing for like another 15 mins or a half hour, and then be tired again. And then fall asleep at 7:30 and sleep until 8-8:30 so is that a nap too? Don't know what to consider that.

THEN, we had a couple of off days where we were out and about, and then his "natural" nap schedule seemed to reestablish even differently and now I'm not even sure what he's doing. I guess something more like:

Wake up 6:30
Sleep 7:30-8:30(or 9 sometimes!)
And 9:30-10:30 (or 10-11)
And 1:30-3?
And 4/5-6/6:30
And then down for the night between 7 and 8.

So basically he's starting to take a few LONGER naps, which is great. Maybe soon now he'll start to take a few less? I'm going to try to write down his naps for a couple days and see what EXACTLY he's doing.

And then they'll probably be yet another post about naps.

They will start spreading out naps and taking longer naps. It's normal. Just wait, when he hits one they go down to 1-2 and it STINKS! By 15 months? They are trying to get rid of naps altogether. Don't let them though. It's the only time I do CIO (because Jensen will fuss for 10 minutes and then go "oh I really would like to take a nap..." lol)
