Hi Vanessa, my 7month old daughter is generally a pretty good sleeper -sleeps through the night and takes regular naps in her crib. We have white noise going, blackout shades, cool temps, etc.
Except for the newborn stage, she’s never napped too long. Usually naps are 45 min and occasionally she’ll nap for an hour or an hour and a half, but not consistently or often. She’s also recently been staying up for much longer periods, and seems to really be fighting her 3rd nap, so Ive tried dropping it this last week and a half. On regular days when both naps are only 40ish min, she’s barely making it to an early bedtime and I’m having to stretch that wake time to get her second nap late enough.
Any tips for lengthening naps at this point? Should I try forcing that 3rd nap back in? I have tried allowing her to wake up and waiting before going in, but I’ve yet to see her fall back asleep after a significant wait.
