I am wondering if anyone has some ideas for how I can break the habit of car rides for napping and start (I know it is rather late in the game for this) getting 2year old DS to take naps in his bed?
Background: DS used to go down for naps at home pretty easily, and when he is at daycare (3x/week) he apparently goes down no problem. But I was heavily pregnant and utterly exhausted over the summer and somehow got DSinto the habit of going for a car ride to nap. I'd then transfer him into bed.
I am now on maternity leave w/ a newborn and DS. All 3 of us could use the nap, DS is an exhausted bear by 5pm if he doesn't nap.
I've tried lying down w/ him, but to no avail.
HELP! Any ideas? Want to do this gently with respect and love.
