I don’t know what to do about Kalena’s naps. She naps every day from 2 to 4 (ish). This is fabulous and I love it. BUT. Recently she’s been having a harder time going to sleep at night. She still goes to bed willingly at 7, but then we hear her in there talking/playing in bed until like 8 or 8:30. She does have the occasional day when she doesn’t nap, always because we’re busy, not because I try to get her to nap and she won’t. On no-nap days she’s fine and she goes to sleep quickly after she goes to bed, but if she goes more than a day without a nap she gets mighty cranky in the evening.
I know I could just move her bedtime back to 8:30 or so, but frankly some days the only thing that gets me through the afternoon is knowing that the kids will go to bed at 7. And I’d rather put up with listening to her in her room than, you know, actually have her be up for another hour and a half. Anyway. When did your kids give up napping for good?
