Milestone: From 2 naps to 1

It's been interesting transitioning Violet from 2 naps to 1. On the advice of the pediatrician, after I reported that Violet's afternoon nap was creeping later and later and was dangerously close to interfering with bedtime, she suggested that we try to "keep her awake" until after lunch. This would consolidate both shorter naps into one long afternoon nap.

On the first day of "Operation 1 Nap" Violet fell asleep after lunch alright - right in her high chair!

On the second day, Violet ate lunch at 10:40, took a solid nap, and I could barely keep her awake through dinner. She fell asleep in my arms at 6:45 and didn't wake up until 8:45 this morning (1 hr 45 min later than usual)!!

Can't wait to see how today goes.

  1. I'm thinking we may need to do this well. Sometimes Link will take two perfect naps. But lately, his PM nap is getting later and later. Sometimes he will just sit in the crib for an hour before falling asleep.
