Lately, he's seemed like he's not tired enough for naps, and when I try to put him down, it takes an hour of me laying with him before he'll fall asleep. On days when I decide no nap, but bed early tonight, he doesn't get as cranky as he used to. But he still seems to sleep a little lighter for the first couple hours.
I'm just starting to think maybe he doesn't need naps anymore. But I know naps are important for development and stuff.. So I don't want to take them away too soon. Every day that he doesn't nap, he goes to bed around 7pm. And he will sleep until 8am or even later sometimes (he sleeps in his crib attached to our bed). So I think he'll still be getting enough sleep at nights.
I know I'll have to play it by ear day to day. But I just want to know when did you know your little one was done with naps?? Is there anything wrong with taking the nap away and bed early instead?
Thanks for reading, and any advice you can give!
