With the Holidays here, the logistics of where and when your child will sleep are top of mind. These holiday sleep tips will help minimize disruptions to their sleep…and yours too!
When my son Clark was 12 months old he was still having two naps a day: 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM and 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM. He also slept 12 hours at night. He definitely liked to sleep. But just one month later after he turned 13 months old, we started to see a change. His morning nap was starting to shift. We could no longer predict what time he wanted to go to sleep. And then he would nap for less than one hour. I waited it out to see if it was a phase. It wasn’t. We knew that it was time to start transitioning to one nap.
Nap routines are just as important as a bedtime routine. Nap routines are an excellent way to establish consistency and predictability, helping a child make the transition from begin awake to falling asleep.
