He has always been a horrible sleeper but with a ton of effort we've finally got him sleeping better at night. Daytime is worse than ever though. Except for occasionally falling asleep in the car, he has taken all his naps in my lap nursing. I used to be able to unlatch him sometimes but now he won't ever stay asleep unless he is latched on the entire nap. I am just DONE with that, I've had enough. Well, that might be overdue AF talking too lol (I hate nursing in the days before AF for some reason).
But anyway, the car isn't a viable daily option (not with gas over $4/gal, high spring/summer temps, and his huge unpredictability... could take minutes or hours for the car to put him to sleep!) and rarely he will fall asleep in the Ergo if we walk outside for a couple of hours but it's far from consistent & it's rainy a lot lately. He will not fall asleep with singing, rocking, lying down beside him, lying him down alone, etc. Even with nursing in my lap, he only sleeps 20-45mins (though very occasionally he'll sleep 1.5-2 hours...)
So I guess I really really really want to drop his nap. It will definitely allow us more flexibility during the day (since he's not happy at home, we could spend more time out!) and will avoid the getting-him-to-sleep frustrations. I don't know how I will get my work done (I WAH) but whatever, I'll figure it out. Will I regret this? Am I just asking for trouble? Or will we have a few tough days & then he'll adapt & be OK with it? Will he sleep an extra hour or two at night?? Haha I know you all don't have crystal balls or anything, but hoping someone who's tried it can share how it went for them....
He is also hopefully going to be starting EI services in a few weeks (not for sleep stuff but may be affecting his sleep?) so I don't know if I should hold off and see if anything they suggest helps or just drop the naps now??
