Day time napping

Just wondering what your LO's nap I during the day.
We want to keep upstairs and his cot bed for night time only as he's sleeping really well (7-6:30) but he's getting too big to sleep in his Stokke bouncer (it's in its lowest position).
Not sure about the Tiny Love rocker so was wondering if anyone had any suggestions smile x

I've always used the pushchair/pram
or a travel cot depending on age.

my 3 year old uses her buggy and my 5 year old uses his bed.

me ds has always napped in his cot. it is for sleeping but not just at night, he still goes straight to sleep when put in it now at 20 months so it's worked for us. in fact it's the only place he will sleep!!

Mine napped in their cots or in the buggy if we were out and about.
I found that beyond 4 months they napped much better in their darkened bedroom. Never caused an issue with nighttime sleep either (you can always go in and wake them up!)

How old is your baby? Does he usually nap at the same times each day? At about 6-7 months a lot of them fall into the 2-3-4 pattern (3 periods of wakefulness in the day, first one 2h long, then 3h, then 4h). It gives a bit of reassurance that they're not going to just sleep from lunchtime till midnight and then be up all night!

2 yo DS naps in his cot (really well - 3 hours sometimes)
5 month old DD naps mostly on me, sometimes in pram

Mostly in her cot (with curtains open in an attempt to differentiate between daytime and nighttime sleep) and sometimes in her car seat or push chair. It works well smile

Up to around 7/8 months in his pram/buggy if we were out and about and on me if we were home. From 7/8 months to now, 18 months in his cot at home or buggy if we're out.
