It also seems to me that he can go longer stretches between sleep as he is getting older. SO that means his naps are a little later plus it is taking 45-60+ minutes to fall asleep(use to be 20-30 min)- which means his nap is really late and consequently his bedtime is late- which means less downtime for me at night. Less time to recharge my batteries for the next day.
SO twice a day I am spending a lot of time and energy putting him to sleep and it is draining my patience. When he does sleep for his nap he will sleep his usual 2 hours- which leads me to believe he still needs to nap- but I was wondering how do you know when a child doesn't need to nap anymore?
Is this expected behavior during this transition time and should just keep at it? I would really like to still keep his bedtime at 8pm- but these late naps are impeding that. When I am at the end of my rope should I just walk him or stick with the plan?
Thanks and Happy New Year!
