As long as he naps for you, that's the important thing surely

his mother is whom I'm i think it may annoy, just testing to see if i should not mention it when she asks whether he has been good!

tell her he sleeps when he's with you because he doesn't want to miss a minute of being with his mum

Hewlettsdaughter - I did actually think that might be why it happens..

hewlettsdaughter Fri 10-Jun-05 22:03:17

Oh, I meant it would just be a nice way of explaining things to your dd!

Think my dd naps better with her childminder, not sure why.

hewlettsdaughter Fri 10-Jun-05 22:04:10

Maybe you (and my childminder) are just better at getting them to sleep! Just don't tell us that!

I knew what you meant but I also thought perhaps it could be why..he's afraid she might not be there when he wakes up but he isn't that bothered about my being there! I think as well it's much easier when it isn't your child, i just put him down as though he is going to go off and not as though he isn't. She would love a break during the day but very rarely gets one.

He is about the same age as your dd IIRC 19 April 2004?

hewlettsdaughter Fri 10-Jun-05 22:19:22

Yes, thought it was you! My dd was born 18 April last year.

Have to go now, have been on mumsnet far too long this evening! Nice to hear from you.

im a cm and the little girl i look after will not sleep weekends but mon-fri she has to have a sleep she asks to go to bed.i think it is probably because she is with me 50 hrs a week so she does not want to miss out on anything at home.

My ds was the opposite, he slept at home but not at his creche and as a result was a miserable grump when he got home. Is is room dark enough and quiet enough? Also, I think that if he has an idea that his mum will come and get him if he makes enough noise then he will simply make enough noise!
