My lovely 9 week old will only nap well in the day in my wrap. While this is fine most of the time and I enjoy the closeness with her , sometimes it would be helpful if she could nap off me! She sleeps at night in the Co sleeper cot and does so well.

Will she learn to nap elsewhere and is there anything I can do to help her gently?

Have you tried feeding or cuddling to sleep with a blanket under them, then transferring them over with the warm blanket?

This sometimes works for my 8 week old. smile if its a bit chilly i actually wrap them up like a wee parcel and feed them like that, then they stay all cosy when I put them down.

Also if they are sound asleep in the sling, I can sometimes unwrap them into bed for a nap if I need my hands free! A lot of the time I just let my last baby nap in the sling and he learned to nap in bed fine.
