could you take him for a walk? he might sleep then (although i know it wont give you any time to yourself)

take him for a walk and turn back and come home the second he drops off, then he might sleep in the pram in the house giving you some time

There's some good advice in The No Cry Sleep Solution about extending naps. DD was the same, I think the only thing that helped with her was getting older!

is it a book franch?

I usually take him out around 3.30 for another nap as he get tired...before dinner...but I want to start him a good routine...

he won't sleep straight now....

crying now...I'm going to pick him...???????

i remember when dd1 was 6 mths - she didnt shut her eyes all day

it only lasted about 3 wks though then she got herself into a routine

would he drop off on the couch?

you have my sympathy

it's confusing...because some mums said to me that if they get overtired can get worst...

I change his nappy and put him down again..he cried a bit ...and I can hear playing with his toy at the moment...doesn't sound like he want to crash again...
I just don't want that this become his routine...
pther babies at his age seem to sleep 2 hours for nap...and they wake up more happy I guess...

will see....

thank you

I think he need a bit longer and that's why ..once he's awake...then he can't get to sleep anymore...
he doesn't sleep on the couch nailpolish..

silent now....

do you think he's good to try put him down again..?
he might adjust...and he won't be bother to wake up next time..and sleep longer....
like happened for the night routine....

at least he's resting in his cot and if he's not screaming then let him play a while, it is hard to get them into a routine if they don't want one (despite what Gina may say!) but stick with it, it will come honest. In the meantime you have my sympathies.

sasa, yes, the book is here - someone here might have an old copy they no longer need if you ask in the 'Wanted' area.

secur is right, don't get too hung up on what other babies do or what the more prescriptive books tell you. I went crazy trying to get DD to sleep 2 hours at lunchtime because I thought that was what she 'should' have - I had no evidence that she would get overtired without it, was just terrified by the warnings! In fact she just needed less daytime sleep than others and now, at 12 months, only has 1 nap a day which varies from 30 mins to 2 hours (usually 1 hour). She sleeps 13-14 hours a night so I'm not changing a thing!

Good luck - and don't fret too much like I did!

sasa15 Fri 11-Feb-05 13:35:41 know is Gina that I'm following
the hitler one!!! are reading my mind....

Still need to go and buy blackout curtain...even if I like the idea he recognise the day from the night and I think when they want to sleep they'll sleep anyway.....

sasa15 Fri 11-Feb-05 13:36:59

yeah are all right.,,,,
anyway he's getting louder not crying...but just aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Lucycat Fri 11-Feb-05 13:42:06

does he like the sound of his own voice? (most men do! )

sasa15 Fri 11-Feb-05 20:49:38

he might do....
he goes a lot ......aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............aaaaaaa...............................a.........a..aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
