What worse can happen if my ds naps only in a pusher?

Hi ladies. My ds, nearly 9 months old, naps only in a pusher. I used to make him take his morning nap in his cot which was quite painful most of the time as he cried a lot unless he fell asleep on a breast. He never slept longer than 30-40 min. Since we moved house I can take him for a short walk around the house and then bring the pusher with him inside and park him in his room. His naps has improved significantly as he naps 1 and a half to 2 hours! More time for me to spend on MN
Anyway, I just wonder, what is the danger in making him nap only in a pusher? Am I creating more problems for later? What sort of problems? Should I try to make him nap in his cot again and hope he will not wake up after 30-40min? Any advice and own experience welcome. Bring it on!

IMO the fact he sleeps in a pram is great! Means you are not tied to the house for nap times! My ds only sleeps for 20 mins in the pram and then wakes and is a grumpy sod the rest of the day. He sleeps much longer in the cot but then me and dd are stuck in while he sleeps. Keep you ds napping in the pram I say!

Thanks peggotty, I haven't looked at it this way! I went for a walk today and he slept only 15min. I guess he is a light sleeper and any noise will distract him. Im just a bit worried Im creating a bad habit of some kind which will come and hunt me some day...
That's why Im asking experienced mothers. Any thoughts?

Don't know the theory... but ine have always napped in both cot and buggy.

Imo if bedtimes are fine and you have a routine and all then you can mess around with the naptimes as suits you and your ds. If he sleeps in the buggy - nothing wrong.
