I just wondered where people let their babies nap in the day? Do you always put them down in the cot? My twins are not great sleepers. When they were first born I always put them down in the cot but now it wakes them if I transfer them once they're asleep and they won't settle in the cots during the day. So I've started leaving them to nap where they fall asleep e.g bouncy chair, Tripp trapp newborn seat, Pram etc. always somewhere where I am in the same room. But should I be stricter on making them take daytime sleep in a cot?
With my twins they napped in the pram till DD was just over 6 months and I think my son stayed napping in there till over 7 months. My daughter all of a sudden at 6 months would only sleep for 30 mins in the pram, when previously she slept in there for 2hrs. When under 3 months they just slept wherever they fell asleep (included bouncy chair). Now at 13 months they sleep in the cot but I’m queen of routine
Previously DD took all naps in her bouncer; now at 7 months she has them in the pram. I’d like her to sleep in the cot but she seems to hate it in the day and as she’s a good sleeper at night I don’t want to push it plus I can move the pram to whichever room I want her to be in
I have a very nearly 6 month old. He has his first nap of the day in his cot - sort of feel our day gets off to a nice start that way. Our second is normally out and about so pram or sling. At the moment the third is in my bed, attached to my boob. Reading this i realise that I am lucky he will sleep in different places!
I always put my DS in his cot for a nap, he was happy to self settle and it seemed quieter to me than having him nap downstairs, before everyone jumps down my throat I know that is not what is recommended. .
However, I had a child who slept beautifully 7pm - 7am with two long naps a day (at least an hour and a half - two hours) until he was 3 years old.
My little boy naps in his pushchair and has done since an early age! Only way I can get him to nap usually is if I rock him a few times in it. If he falls asleep in the car I’ll transfer him to the pushchair whenever I’ve got where I’m going to x
